St Mary’s Food Drive 

RE/MAX Professionals is hosting a food drive for St Mary’s Food Bank until Thursday, April 24th. At each of our office locations, there are boxes for you to drop off your donations.

Here are some facts about our community:

  • Currently more than 1 in 4 children, 1 in 5 Arizonans and 1 in 7 seniors in Arizona live in poverty.
  • Arizona’s hunger rates are higher than national averages: 19.1 percent of Arizonans are food insecure, compared to 16.4 percent nationally and 29.9 percent of Arizonan children face hunger, compared to 22.4 percent nationally.
  • Arizona ranks third in the country for high child food insecurity rates, behind only New Mexico and D.C., with 478,420 children facing hunger on a daily basis.
  • 2 million Arizonans are considered working poor, living at or below the Federal Poverty Guideline. This is the majority of those served by the Food Bank’s emergency food box program.
  • More than 40 percent of the households receiving emergency food assistance have at least one person who is working.

You can easily participate by bringing your food and other non-perishable items to your office. For every one dollar that is donated, the food bank can provide seven meals. For as little as $25.00 we can feed up to 175 people.

Items needed:

  • Beans (canned or dried)
  • Canned Fruit & Vegetables
  • Canned Soups, Stews, Chili and Pastas
  • Cereal (whole grain, low sugar) 
  • Diapers (children’s & adults)
  • Juice (canned, plastic or boxed)
  • Pasta
  • Peanut Butter
  • Rice
  • Mac & cheese
  • Tuna & other meats (canned or vacuum packed)

Contributions are tax deductible and checks should be made payable to St Mary’s Food Bank. If you have any questions, please contact Tiger Myers at 602-501-8443 or via email at aztiger57@gmail.com. Go to www.firstfoodbank.org to learn more.
