About HPFB

Learn More

Our mission is to alleviate hunger in the Texas Panhandle.

Founded in 1982, High Plains Food Bank (HPFB) is a nonprofit organization serving as the clearing house for collection, storage, and distribution of donated and purchased grocery products, providing aide to the top 29 counties in the Texas Panhandle. HPFB partners with local agencies, including churches, senior centers, child care facilities, halfway houses, soup kitchens, Kids Cafes, emergency pantries, shelters, and other nonprofits to help end local hunger.

Many families in the Texas Panhandle are food insecure. As a member of the Feeding America network, HPFB can provide 9 meals worth of food for every dollar donated. Sources of donated food include the USDA’s Emergency Food Assistance Program, local food drives, grocery stores, restaurants, processing plants, ranchers, feedlot operators and individual donors. In addition, HPFB purchases food to supplement the warehouse supply in order to provide the variety of foods highly needed for balanced nutrition.

The need is real, and your help is vital. Please consider helping solve local hunger by making a one-time or recurring donation on our secure donation page.
