Barro’s Pizza Holds 2nd Annual Holiday Hunger Fight
With 15 percent of Arizonans 100 percent below the poverty line, local and family-owned pizzeria, Barro’s Pizza is on a mission to fight hunger in the Valley. On Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013, the Second Annual Barro’s Pizza Holiday Hunger Fight will be held, with all proceeds received from open to close of business being donated to St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance. One large pizza bought at Barro’s Pizza on Dec. 3, can mean up to 70 meals provided at St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance this holiday season.
Last year the first annual Barro’s Pizza Hunger Fight earned over $120,000 in less than 24 hours for St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance. This year, the Barro family hopes to donate one million meals, equating to about $143,000 raised.
“Throughout the year we try to give back by donating to different high school sports, little leagues, PTO fundraisers and many other community organizations across the Valley. We wanted to create a special philanthropic event that all 33 stores could participate in together. The amount that we raised last year is really in thanks to our great customers who supported our Hunger Fight event,” said Ken Barro, co-owner of Barro’s Pizza.
