The Daily Platter is the blog of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, located in Phoenix, Arizona.
St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance would like to thank the morning team at Channel 15 – among them anchor Connie Colla, meteorologist Amy Murphy and reporters Brien McElhatten and Kimberly Cheng – for donating their time on Nov. 23 at our Knight Client Services Center. The team packed holiday food boxes and carried them out to the client’s cars, listened to stories and even posed for pictures with those who asked.
Channel 15 is a very committed and community-minded station and one of the driving forces behind Operation Santa Claus, a charity that helps not only St. Mary’s but several other worthy charities during the holiday season. But no one had to tell Brien or Kimberly where to come for their shift – both have done several stories on the Food Bank and the incredible need our community faces due to food insecurity.
To the management and staff of Channel 15, St. Mary’s is touched by your benevolence and extends the offer to come back any time. When you distribute 275,000 meals a day, another helping hand is always appreciated!
