September is Hunger Action Month and St. Mary’s Food Bank is partnering with the Downtown Phoenix community to raise money and food donations for their 300,000 meals challenge.
The goal is to raise enough money and food donations to feed 300,000 Arizonans in need.
Donations of nonperishable or canned food items can be brought to Cityscape Phoenix on Central Avenue between Washington and Jefferson streets on Sept. 17. Volunteers will be unloading donations straight from vehicles at a drop-off zone on Central Avenue.
The event will take place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
St. Mary’s Food Bank will have several other donating opportunities during Hunger Action Month.
