The Daily Platter is the blog of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, located in Phoenix, Arizona.
Donations of food and funds dwindle during the summer months and so do the number of people who volunteer their time at St. Mary’s. With so many people out of town this time of year, we can use every available hand to help.
APS Grant Supports Backpack Program to Feed Hungry Kids
Thank you APS, for awarding St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance a grant to support our weekend Backpack Program! This grant will provide 2,000 backpacks full of food (or 16,000 meals) for low-income children in the Phoenix-metro area.
This year a special 5 Ton Food/Donation Drive is to be held at 4 Fry’s Food Stores throughout the Phoenix area and to help local Food Banks. Non-perishable food and monetary donations for the 5 Ton Food/Donation program will be accepted to complete food boxes from local food banks. Friday July 31st, 2015 is your chance to help restock local food banks and/or donate to the Turkeys to Troops program through AZ Heroes to Hometowns.
