Our regional office works toward a hunger-free Lubbock by assessing needs and establishing suitable collaborations. Our Neighborhood Guide to Food and Assistance, provides an in-depth overview of food resources in the South Plains. (Take a look at the interactive version of the Lubbock Food Assistance map here.) Another part of our work involves coordinating volunteer resource projects. Examples of available volunteer opportunities include helping Texans navigate benefits applications, supervising and working in various community gardens around town, cleaning computers that provide benefits application access, and designing graphics to provide a visual of Summer Meals locations. Our volunteers have the opportunity to serve with a variety of neighborhoods and organizations around Lubbock, and we work to match different skill sets with creative outlets to increase food access. Our current list of volunteer opportunities can be found at the Lubbock Volunteer Center as well as HungerVolunteer.org.
