LUBBOCK - The 20 counties fed by the South Plains Food Bank will now be better served. The food bank has broken ground on a building at 56th St. and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. that will be nearly twice the size of its present facilities at 4612 Locust Ave.
David Weaver, chief executive officer of South Plains, said the food bank building will have about 75,000 sf of floor space, compared to 39,000 sf in the present building.
The project was made possible by a grant from the J.T. and Margaret Talkington Foundation that totaled $9.8 million. South Plains Food bank hopes to occupy the facility by fall 2015.
