Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona

On Saturday February 3, the Kiwanis de Amigos worked at the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona. We had help from the Sabino High School Key Club and the University of Arizona Circle K. Together we packed 1350 bags of groceries into 80 pallets, which totals ove 14,000 pounds of food. This food will help families in need throughout our community. The Community Food Bank's mission is to change lives in the communities we serve by feeding the hungry today, and building a healthy, hunger-free tomorrow.
