United Market Street to Host Gracious Gift Wine to Help End Hunger [Audio]

The Gracious Gift Wine, Facebook

Thursday on Lubbock’s First News, Cindy Sebek, founder of Gracious Gift Wines, and Eddie Owens, Communications Director of United Supermarkets in Lubbock, spoke about the Gracious Gift’s contribution to the effort to end hunger by selling bottles of wine.

The Gracious Gift, partnering with Food Banks, sells bottles of wine that give back to locals in need. The funds received from these sales go toward ending hunger by providing meals through Food Banks. Sebek said, “I think it’s completely unacceptable that here in the United States we have our own neighbors who are really, really hungry.”The wines are sold mainly around Texas in H.E.B. stores and United Supermarkets, as well as in Harris Teeter stores in North Carolina. The company is working to expand to other locations around the U.S.

United Market Streets and the United on 82nd and Frandford will offer Gracious Gift Wines beginning this month. They will offer a selection of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Old Vine Red from the Oak Ridge Winery in Lodi, California. Wines purchased in Lubbock will help the South Plains Food Bank provide four meals to those in need. An introduction to and tasting of Gracious Gift Wines will be hosted at the United Market Street on 19th and Quaker on Thursday, April 3 at 2 p.m.
