AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — The High Plains Food Bank hosted the “Kids Cafe Classic” at Ross Rogers Golf Course.

The High Plains Food Bank said before COVID-19 that it used to be that one in five kids who were food insecure. Now, in the midst of this pandemic, that has changed to one in three kids in our community who is hungry.

The tournament helps to eradicate that hunger here on the High Plains helps to feed those kids.
