For Hunger Action Month, Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who took part in Hunger Action Month during September 2011!

St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance was overwhelmed and impressed with the number of people who took the “30 Ways in 30 Days” challenge to a new level and set about making a difference. The size and scope of each gift was wide, but the idea and the goal was the same: Helping our neighbors
We received a 55,000-meal donation from Scottsdale Bible Church, a $40,000 donation from Fry’s Food Stores, 30,000 pounds of protein from Tyson, 5,300 pounds of canned food from Flagstaff neighborhoods taking part in the “First Frost First Drive,” 2,000-plus meals from Gordon Biersch through their keg tapping party and more than 100 cans from a little girl named Catherine who walked around her block asking neighbors for help.

There were also thousands of other Arizona’s who dropped cans into a food box, made a cash donation St. Mary’s or volunteered their time and energy at one of our four locations or dozens of off-site events. On behalf of the hungry of Arizona, we are humbled and we applaud your efforts.

A big thanks from The Chew!
