Maxi-Lift and 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 Maxi-Lift and Southwest Agri-Plastics, 700 people across 13 counties will have at least one week’s worth of food.

In previous years, Maxi-Lift and Southwest Agri-Plastics, Inc. leadership and employees have hosted food drives and volunteered with local food banks to help their neighbors in need.

The companies’ community outreach programs, Operation Elevation and Making A Difference, have encouraged active community involvement and support for many years, but this year they’ve taken it a step further. With a 30% increase in need, drastically changing distribution models, and lower volunteer availability for the NTFB due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a virtual food drive allows Maxi-Lift and Southwest Agri-Plastics, Inc., to continue to serve the community by providing meals through cash donations.

“The goal is to spread the word about the increased need and encourage our neighbors to help each other, now more than ever, by participating in virtual food drives in your community. We know that when we help our communitiespsucceed, we succeed,” said Paul Phillips, president of Maxi-Lift. Maxi-Lift and Southwest Agri-Plastics, Inc. have 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 grain, poultry, egg, swine, and livestock. Designing, manufacturing, and supporting long-lasting and durable products to ensure that food supplies are as strong as ever is something Maxi-Lift and Southwest Agri-Plastics have always taken pride in.
