    KTAR News’ Gaydos and Chad Show brings back Food Bank Fridays to support St. Mary’s


    Peoria resident Trent remembers running low on cash five to six years ago and needing a food bank as he was unable to afford groceries for his family.

    St. Mary’s Food Bank was there for Trent and his wife in their time of need, with the couple visiting two to three times during that month to get an emergency food box from St. Mary’s Food Bank.

    “It really, really helped,” Trent told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Gaydos and Chad Show.

    “It doesn’t feel good not being able to put food on the plate for your wife and for your family. It’s not the greatest feeling in the world but knowing that there is somewhere there to help you out, that definitely makes you feel a little better.”

    Trent is not alone as millions in Arizona face food insecurity every year and that’s why Gaydos and Chad are bringing back their Food Bank Fridays benefitting St. Mary’s Food Bank presented by The UPS Store and Sweet James Accident Attorneys.

    The campaign runs through July 29 and the goal is to raise $15,000 for the nonprofit, which would equate to 100,000 meals.
