Review of South Plains Food Bank GRUB Farm by TexasRealFood
On a 5.5-acre land in Lubbock, Texas, South Plains Food Bank, Inc. is a chemical-free urban farm growing all-natural vegetables and serving as a place to teach life skills and job skills to unprivileged teens. Through their CSA program, they collect funds as payment to the youth for working on the farm in the summer. Moreover, they produce a weekly newsletter for their shareholders and host an annual Friends and Family Day in May. They also offer tours and volunteer opportunities. Besides, shareholders can know and educate teenage farmers. A satisfied customer said, "I get wonderful, locally grown food, and it is impressive that they serve many teens."
