The Daily Platter is the blog of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, located in Phoenix, Arizona.
Fry’s Food Stores across Arizona report a great response the first week of the 100-Ton Food Drive, but we need your help over the final two weeks to help reach the goal of collecting 100 TONS (that’s 200,000 pounds) of food for the one in five Arizonans who need help putting food on the table for their families.
On Valentine’s Day, St. Mary’s Food Bank will host the ‘100-Ton Tuesday” activities at the Fry’s Food Store at Dobson and Ray Road all day until 6 p.m. Come by and enter raffles to win a wide-screen TV from ABC 15, and make a donation while you are picking up that gift for your special someone at the Fry’s Valentine’s headquarters tent in the parking lot. What better way to top off a day of giving then to donate 10 pounds of food to Arizona food banks for a one-dollar donation?
ABC 15 will be broadcasting live from 5-7 a.m. on Tuesday morning and from 3 to 6 p.m. in the afternoon. So come on out, take advantage of the great specials at Fry’s and save a can or two – or dollar or two –for those who really need it. If we all pull together, that 100-Ton number will pile up before leap day on Feb. 29.
