Barro’s Pizza Raises Over $120,000 in One Day for St. Mary’s Food Bank
Barro‘s Pizza Raises Over $120,000 in One Day for St. Mary‘s Food Bank On December 4, 2012, Barro‘s Pizza experienced record sales for the year and, through a partnership with St. Mary‘s Food Bank, we donated all of these proceeds to help feed hungry families living in poverty.
The amount of money raised between the Valley‘s 31 Barro‘s restaurants totaled to $120,811.41, which is enough to feed over 800,000 people.
The event attracted the attention of every news channel that day; however, the most important part is that we helped restock the locally operated St. Mary‘s Food Bank. St. Mary‘s is the world‘s first “food bank” and has worked since 1967 to help alleviate hunger in Arizona.
At Barro‘s Pizza, we completely agree with St. Mary‘s mission and were shocked to learn that 1 in 4 children live in poverty in Arizona. We encourage continued support of ending hunger and we look forward to partnering with the St. Mary‘s Food Bank again soon.
