What Can You Do to Fight Hunger in Your Community?

 Ask Max and Jacob Cohen

Max Cohen was among a group of sixth- and seventh-graders who were part of a St. Mary’s “Hunger 101” presentation at the Jewish Community Center in Scottsdale as part of Passover Youth Day of Service on April 17. His mom Andrea said the presentation “hand a hug...e impact on Max” and he came home determined to do something himself to help fight hunger in Arizona.

Max told his younger brother Jacob about what he’s learned and quickly had a partner in his quest. “Later that evening, they were running around the house looking for loose change and pulling money from all their hiding places,” Andrea said.
Their parents quickly got into the act, offering to match any money they raised by doing household chores and soon the two brothers had enough money to help St. Mary’s provide more than 240 meals to the hungry of Arizona. Andrea was a proud mom as she brought her sons to St. Mary’s recently, where the boys presented their donation and received a tour of the Food Bank along with some snazzy Hunger 101 gear to wear this summer.
Thank you to the entire Cohen Family for your donation and your interest in helping those who need it right now. And if Max and Jacob can become hunger fighters, you can too
