The Daily Platter is the blog of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, located in Phoenix, Arizona.
Each summer, donations to the food bank decrease while demand for services spikes upwards – with many children at home and no longer receiving the free or reduced-lunch meals offered at school. For many families, providing two additional meals at home is an overwhelming hardship.
St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance seeks to bridge that gap for as many families as possible, providing meals each weekday and, at many locations on Saturdays as well.
Once again this summer St. Mary’s assumes sponsorship of the 2014 Summer Food Service Program for Children and will provide approximately 5,000 meals at a record 99 private and public sites around the Valley.
