2010 Havasupai Drop


In mid-December, St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance partnered for the fifth year in a row with the Marine’s Toys for Tots program and helped to deliver food, toys and clothing to the Havasupai village in the Grand Canyon.

Reportedly the most remote community in the United States, the village is home to about 400 people and is accessible only by mule trails or helicopter. Food Bank Board member Troy McNemar, joined staff members Rick Fresia and Eric Wolverton, on a two-day, one-night trip to the village, flying down to the village with several hundred emergency food boxes on Marine CH-46 Sea Knight helicopters.
