High Plains Food Bank Feeling The Government Shutdown

The government shutdown is a little over two weeks old.  That’s bad news for the High Plains Food Bank.

The food bank maintains that shutdown or not, they can’t afford to stop services.  People are going to need food whether the government is shut down or not.

The High Plains Food Bank receives almost 20 percent of its canned vegetables from a USDA program that is administered through the state.  If the shutdown becomes protracted the food bank will have to reach out elsewhere to make up the shortfall.

The food bank is still helping people apply for food stamp programs and will hold all future events, including the annual Turkey Trot.
