ST. MARY’S FOOD BANK ALLIANCE TO RECEIVE 12,000 POUNDS OF PORK TO DISTRIBUTE TO ARIZONA FAMILIES IN NEED

Pork Provided by National Pork Board and Farmer John Amounts to Nearly 60,000 Meals

More than 12,000 pounds of pork will be provided to the St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance Del E. Webb Distribution Center (2831 N. 31st Ave) on Thursday, March 3. With the combined unemployment and underemployment rates in Arizona remaining at more than 19 percent, St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance will need to distribute 36 million pounds of food into the community in the next six months – or more than 275,000 pounds of food each day.  America’s pork producers are proud to be able to give back to their communities to help meet that goal.

Join Arizona, Minnesota and North Carolina pork producers when they make their contribution delivery at the St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance Del E. Webb Distribution Center Thursday, March 3 at 9:00 a.m.  The Food Bank is located at 2831 N. 31st Ave., Phoenix, Ariz. 85009.

America’s 70,000 pork producers help feed the world and are committed to ending hunger by supporting local food banks.  The pork provided in Phoenix equates to nearly 60,000 meals for families in need.
