The Daily Platter is the blog of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, located in Phoenix, Arizona.
Summer is almost here and St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance needs your help. Each summer, demand for our services increase while donations fall as folks leave town for cooler weather. And our supplies are ALREADY down almost 30 percent compared to last year.
Now is a great time to help! The National Association of Letter Carriers’ “Stamp Out Hunger” Food drive is THIS SATURDAY, May 12th. All you have to do is leave a bag of food near the mailbox on Saturday morning and the letter carriers will do the rest. Do you have 6-7 cans in your pantry you can spare? How about a box of cereal or pasta? A jar or two of peanut butter?
This is a great time to clean out your pantry of unwanted items and help fill emergency food boxes for someone who can REALLY use it. The letter carriers will drop reminder cards and bags in your mailbox this week. You can help families in need without leaving your driveway. Please help by making your donation on SATURDAY, May 12.
