St. Mary’s sets September as Hunger Action Month

Posted

In a year unlike any other, St. Mary’s Food Bank celebrates its 53rd year feeding Arizona’s hungry in 2020.

The world’s first food bank kicked things off in September by raising awareness and encouraging the public to make a special effort to help those in need during Hunger Action Month 2020.

St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance’s “30 Ways in 30 Days” Hunger Action Month calendar, presented by Arby’s, provides an action or activity for every day in September so all Arizonans can step forward and help those struggling with food insecurity.

Three West Valley Nothing Bundt Cakes stores have declared Sept. 14 donation day, and will be donating 100% of all sales for that day to St Mary’s Food Bank.

They include:

  • Surprise — 15332 W. Bell Road, Suite 121. Call 623-200-5441.
  • Glendale — 5890 W. Thunderbird Road, Suite 101. Call 602-938-9866.
  • Goodyear — 13824 W. McDowell Road, Suite 106. Call 623-547-7415.

Those wishing to help can donate change or make a special gift at the register at any Safeway or Albertsons location during the 3TV Battle Against Childhood Hunger which benefits several food banks all during September.

St. Mary’s Surprise Distribution Center is open from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. weekdays at 13050 W. Elm St.

Or visit any Arby’s location on Tuesday, Sept. 29 and 20% of a purchase will be automatically donated to St. Mary’s. Guests have an opportunity to donate at the register as well.

Visit StMarysFoodBank.org or call 602-242-FOOD.
