According to the United Food Bank, Arizona is tied as the worst state in the U.S. when it comes to child hunger, and 5th worst for overall food insecurity. The holidays are one of the most difficult times for those struggling to make ends meet. With 74% of households living below the federal poverty line, the holidays can become even more of a burden for families that are already struggling in their day to day lives.
Barro‘s East Valley stores (please see participating locations below), are collecting non-perishable food donations, now through December 25, 2012 for United Food Bank
For every two food items that you donate to the Barro‘s Holiday Food Drive, you will receive $2 off of a Large or Extra Large pizza. Bring in four cans? You will receive $2 off an additional Large or Extra Large Pizza purchased, and so on.
You can either drop the food items off at any of the East Valley locations below or let us know when ordering for delivery that you have food items that you would like picked up.
During the holiday season United Food Bank looks for the following items as they are usually low stocked:
- Canned Meats
- Canned Vegetables
- Boxed Stuffing
- Packaged Mashed Potatoes
They are also always looking to fill their food bank with the following items:
- Chili con Carne or Beef Stew
- Canned Vegetables
- Canned Tomato products
- Rice & Pasta
- Meat & Meat Alternatives (Tuna, peanut butter)
Please join us in helping the East Valley community this holiday season and make this a successful food drive by dropping off food items to the Barro‘s locations below!
