Southwest Agri-Plastics, Inc. recently partnered with the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) to provide 15,000 nutritious meals through the virtual food drive Neighbors Helping Neighbors program. The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for the NTFB. Through the virtual food drive donation provided by Southwest Agri-Plastics, 700 people across 13 counties will have one week’s worth of food.
Southwest Agri-Plastics has long provided the highest quality products to the food industry, not just locally, but around the world. Their products and related product support are recognized across the spectrum of agriculture industries including poultry, egg, swine, livestock, and horticulture. Designing, manufacturing, and supporting long-lasting and durable products to ensure that food supplies are as strong as ever is something Southwest Agri-Plastics has always taken pride in.
In previous years, Southwest Agri-Plastics employees and leadership have hosted food drives and volunteered with local food banks to help their neighbors in need. With a 30% increase in need and drastically changing distribution models and volunteer availability due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a virtual food drive allows Southwest Agri-Plastics to continue to serve the community by providing meals through cash donations.
