The Daily Platter is the blog of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, located in Phoenix, Arizona.
The Alphabet Soup Food Drive kicks off on Wednesday, Jan. 30 and runs through Mar. 2 at Fry’s Food Stores in Arizona. ABC 15 and Fry’s are asking for your help to stock food banks with donations of non-perishable food or by making a $1 donation with a special swipe card at the checkout stand.
Last year, this drive filled Arizona food banks with food and funds that allowed food banks to distribute 695 TONS of food to the one in five Arizonans and one in four children who are food insecure in our state. Please help us top that number in 2013 with your donation – each dollar will allow the food banks to distribute the food equivalent of SIX meals to those in need.
We also invite you to be part of “Souper Tuesdays!” all during the month of February. Each Tuesday, ABC 15 will be at a Fry’s Food store, complete with on-site music, entertainment and information on the food drive. Join us at these “Souper Tuesday” locations:
Feb. 5 – Fry’s Food Store at 744 West Camelback in Phoenix
Feb. 12 – Fry’s Food Store at 1950 West Ray Road in Chandler
Feb. 19 – Fry’s Food Store at 4025 East Thunderbird in Phoenix
Feb. 26 – Fry’s Food Store at 1935 North Stapley in Mesa
