St. Mary’s has been able to provide more healthy protein to families in need over the last several months thanks to a Tyson Foods Protein Innovation grant. This grant has allowed us to develop a partnership with JBS Tolleson who now repackages and donates meat to St. Mary’s Food Bank. An estimated 190,000 pounds of ground beef will now be distributed throughout Arizona to people who need it most! Thank you Tyson & JBS!

This collaborative food drive, involving numerous Valley leaders, businesses, food agencies and churches will raise both the food and money to assist with the Arizona hunger problem.
