Shopping Spree

Shopping sprees sponsored by Alliance Beverage brings in more than 1500 pounds of food for St. Mary’s

St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance was the beneficiary of two shopping sprees at local grocery stores on Dec. 18. The shopping sprees were sponsored by Alliance Beverage and raided the shelves of a Ranch Market and Food City in Phoenix.

At the first location, members of the Los Bomberos from the Phoenix Fire Department lined up with two shopping carts and after the horn sounded, they swiped canned food items into the carts from the shelves of the Ranch Market on Grand Ave in Phoenix. After the 60 seconds was up, they had filled two shopping carts to overflowing with non-perishable food items. The bill came to nearly $1,500 of exactly the kind of items the Food Bank needs – peanut butter, tuna, soups, rice and chili.

Later in the afternoon, more members of the Phoenix Fire Department assembled at the Food City on 7th Ave and Southern. After staking out the aisles with the best food, they were off for their 60 second spree. They too focused on the top items that the Food Bank needs for its emergency food boxes – beans, canned vegetables, canned meats and the ever important peanut butter. Their haul brought in over $1000 worth of food for the hungry of Arizona.

All told, the food weighed more than 1,500 pounds. Thank you to the firefighters, Ranch Market and Food City for their participation, and to Alliance Beverage for their generous support of our mission to alleviate hunger in Arizona! The food donated will go directly in the over 30,000 emergency food drive boxes that the Food Bank gives out every month. Watch the fun on our Youtube site:

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
