Food Pantry Tierra Blanca

Food Insecurity could be coming to an end with the first full-service pantry in Randall County.

The food pantry at Tierra Blanca will target senior citizens but also West Texas A&M University students.

When the new pantry opens, qualified clients will be getting food by using allotted credits in the store setting.

Pantry officials say they have a registered dietician and nutritionist to help create a food pyramid targeting the demographic of seniors and WT students.

There are four main areas the market will focus on, food sourcing, volunteers, donations, and the community effort.

A pre-opening is scheduled for November 21st, with the grand opening scheduled in January.

According to research by the Bivens Foundation, there are more seniors having food insecurities in Randall County than in any other county in the Panhandle
