Lufkin Pantry Raid

Longview/Lufkin Pantry Raid 2023

Longview High School and Lufkin High School came together for the first time before their football game on September 15, to provide meals for hungry East Texans.

“We are thrilled that two new school districts want to have their own pantry raid to benefit the East Texas Food Bank (ETFB),” said David Emerson, CEO of the ETFB. “It’s so exciting to have students create their own fundraiser and give back to a cause that helps other children in their communities.”

Both schools collected a total of $3,127 in the fundraiser. That helps provide over 15,600 meals to the families the ETFB serves. All proceeds and food will stay in each respected community to assist with programs that feed hungry East Texans.

Longview ISD was declared the winner of the 2023 Pantry Raid competition.
