Laredo, TX (November 2, 2018) The South Texas Food Bank was delighted to know that students from TAMIU, Texas A&M International University, was enthusiastic about helping the food bank in a new and creative way. Under the direction of Natasha Hovey, Assistant Professor, and Dr. James Moyer, Assistant Professor and Chair of TAMIU’s Department of Fine & Performing Arts, the TAMIU Ceramics Students donated 500 beautifully handcrafted bowls.

The donated bowls will be used to help the South Texas Food Bank’s fundraising efforts. Through fundraising, the South Texas Food Bank is able to spread hunger awareness and raise funds to continue to deliver food to many needy individuals.

The South Texas Food Bank is frequently visited by TAMIU students who come in to volunteer and put in the man hours to help us help the thousands that go hungry in our South Texas communities. Community oriented organizations and individuals plays a significant role in the continuation of our non-profit organization and its programs. The Commodity Supplemental Food Program helps over 9,500 senior citizens, while the Adopt-A-Family program helps over 28,000 family units in our communities.  

Diego Canales from the TAMIU Ceramics Students shared his thoughts during the special presentation of the bowls. “It is amazing to see the finalized product and what these bowls will help the food bank accomplish. Everybody wins in this situation. We help the food bank and my love for ceramic bowl crafting grows.”

Alma Boubel, STFB Executive Director commented, “It is through these partnerships and the help we receive from the public that we are able to deliver hope to many needy families. The food bank is beyond grateful to have received this beautiful donation from the very talented TAMIU Ceramics Students.” For more information about the South Texas Food Bank and to learn ways on how to get involved, contact us at (956)726-3120 or visit www.southtexasfoodbank.org.
