The South Plains Food Bank received a hefty donation from a local religious group.

The Lubbock Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints donated more than 14,000 pounds of food from Deseret Industries.

Deseret is a non-profit thrift store that is run by the LDS Church which specifically deals with poverty relief.

A press release from the South Plains Food Bank said, “The food, from Deseret Industries, continues to reflect the ongoing commitment The Lubbock Texas Stake of the LDS Church has for struggling neighbors.”

The Lubbock Texas Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints says they hope to continue to help hungry neighbors.

Sterling Shumway, Ph.D President of the Lubbock Texas Stake said, “We are grateful that for the 3rd year we could provide a significant contribution of food to the Summer of Sharing Food Drive. We plan to continue this support for many years to come.”

Earlier this year the South Plains Food Bank received a donation of 50,000 pounds of potatoes from a anonymous donor associated with the LDS Church.
