The Daily Platter is the blog of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, located in Phoenix, Arizona.
Wells Fargo is trying to fill the shelves of Valley Food Banks all over Arizona now through Aug. 3 with its annual statewide food drive. Simply stop into any Wells Fargo bank location, look for the food boxes set up in the lobby and help the one in four Arizona children who are struggling with hunger with a non-perishable food donation.
Donations will benefit members of the Association of Arizona Food Banks, which collectively distributed more than 131 million pounds of food last year – enough to provide 299,000 meals every day through 1,600 sites. People who wish to donate cash can send checks to the Association of Arizona Food Banks, 2100 N. Central Ave., Ste. 230, Phoenix, AZ 85004. Donations also may be made online at http://www.azfoodbanks.org.
With television cameras rolling, Wells Fargo officials visited the St. Mary’s warehouse on July 19 to speak about the need for non-perishable food items in Arizona – at St. Mary’s warehouse, stocks are down 30 percent compared to last summer – and what items the food bans need most.
The food you donate in your area will stay there and benefit the hungry in your neighborhood. This is one of the only statewide food drives and St. Mary’s Food Bank would like to thank Wells Fargo for their commitment to fighting hunger!
