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.
