St. Mary's Food Bank

  • Apr 12, 2014 · 12:00 PM
  • St. Mary's Food Bank

Please join the Phoenix Philanthropists for a fun & exciting afternoon of sorting and packing non-perishable food at St. Mary's, the world's premiere and model food bank.  Come enjoy a wonderful family-friendly environment as we work together to sort food, to ensure its integrity, and prepare food boxes with much-needed nutritious essentials for those struggling most in our community.  So let's come together for the community and make a huge difference together!

Make an even bigger difference! Simply bring non-perishable food donations and you will be helping even further to ensure no one in our community will be without food.

      Hi, Tracee! I am so very sorry you couldn't get in yesterday. Had you walked up the large ramp to the large "roll-up" door at the warehouse location on 31st Ave (not the distribution center just around the corner on Thomas)? The door normally will open automatically when you approach it. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I hope you will join us next time.
