The Apache Junction Food Bank (AJFB) will be joining up with United Food Bank and 12 News as part of a televised interview on Arizona Midday July 25th and August 28th. 12 News is the host of the “Summer of a Million Meals” program, an effort to raise awareness of childhood hunger in our region.
A million meals sounds like a lot, but when 85,000 children in our East Valley communities are not sure where they are going to get their next meal, it makes you stop and think. Nearly 60% of food bank clients are classified as the “working poor,” and 1 in 4 children in our community goes to bed hungry every night.
The AJFB invites you to watch the 12 News feature and consider helping families at risk of hunger by making a donation. Your donation is a “give where you live” contribution – 89 cents of every $1 will go directly to the purchase of food to feed local working poor families, seniors, veterans and the homeless. There are three secure ways to give: online, in person, or mail, 575 N. Idaho Rd., Suite 701, Apache Junction, AZ 85119-4015. If you wish to donate by telephone, please call 480-983-2995.
