Ready For The Next 50 Years

This fall, St. Mary’s Food Bank celebrates 50 years of improving the quality of life for Arizonans in need. Thanks to support from steadfast friends like you, we’ve been able to feed thousands upon thousands of hungry children, seniors and families.

That’s a remarkable achievement, and you should feel proud to have changed so many lives for the better. Here at St. Mary’s Food Bank, we’re inspired by your generosity and courage. Arizonans have always been leaders in the fight against hunger, stretching all the way back to our humble beginnings as the world’s first food bank.

Your example serves to motivate us for the long fight ahead. We can’t afford to rest on our laurels — not when there are still so many people counting on us in this community. Every day, children are trying — and failing — to fall asleep at night in spite of the hunger pains. Seniors spend their days unsure if they’ll be able to put dinner on the table. So many families don’t even know they’ll need us yet.

With you on our side, I know we can help them. Thank you for your ongoing support of St. Mary’s Food Bank. Your generosity means the world to us as we look ahead to the next 50 years of service.

Best wishes this summer,

Tom Kertis

President and Chief Executive Offer
