Notes:

West Texas Food Bank was established by a small group of
concerned citizens in 1985 to address the critical issue
of hunger in West Texas. In the first year, the Food Bank
provided 203,000 pounds of food and groceries to 40 agencies
on a budget of only $50,000. In 1996, addition of the El
Paso area brought the service area to a total of 22 counties.
Since 2005, the Food Bank has annually distributed more than
5 million pounds of food to nonprofit partner agencies.

West Texas Food Bank has an mission to increase public awareness
on issues of hunger. This focus is multi-faceted. Increased
donations of food and dollars so as to continue the service to
agencies and their clients is one benefit of public awareness,
but providing nutrition education and assisting our agencies in
distribution of nutritious food is also part of that awareness,
as is the need to inform those needing assistance that help is
available in West Texas.

A member in good standing of America�s Second Harvest�The Nation�s
Food Bank Network and the Texas Food Bank Network, West Texas Food
Bank receives guidance in the form of operating standards,
training, inspection, and food supply information. Additionally,
The Food Bank is appointed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture
and the Federal Emergency Management Administration to provide
emergency and disaster food assistance throughout West Texas
and to assist other regions as needed in these types of
emergencies.

West Texas Food Bank�s major purpose and strategy is to
serve our partner agencies by collecting corporate and
private donations of food and groceries, distributing USDA
commodities, and helping those agencies to provide food
assistance to needy citizens in their local communities.
The Food Bank maintains three branch warehouses (Alpine,
El Paso, and Odessa) where donated food is collected,
sorted, inspected, repackaged for household use, and
distributed through a network of agencies to needy West
Texans. West Texas Food Bank Food Bank seeks local,
regional, and national donations of food and groceries,
sorts, inspects, repackages, and distributes these
wholesome, but unmarketable products through its network
of agencies, large and small. Included in that network
of charitable organizations are daycare centers, youth
programs, senior centers, soup kitchens, homeless shelters,
residential shelters, rehabilitation centers, and food
pantries. These small organizations rely upon the �bulk buying
power� and �increased public awareness� available when they
join the West Texas Food Bank hunger-relief network.
