Category: Community event

The 31st Summer Olympics Games have just concluded and in recognition of its competitive and unifying spirit, Matthews Crossing Food Bank (MCFB) in Chandler, Arizona is sponsoring a Food Drive Event. The Food Bank is partnering with local churches to unite them through friendly competition in the fight against hunger. Summer is the slowest time of the year for MCFB for donations, but the need for food is constant. The food drive will run from Sunday, August 28, 2016 to Sunday, September 25, 2016. MCFB will be collecting the following items as they represent the items most needed by the Chandler community:

• Canned Meat - Sun, August 28
• Peanut Butter - Sun, September 4
• Pasta - Sun, September 11
• Cereal - Sun, September 18
• Bottled Water - Sun, September 25

The church that collects the most food, as measured in pounds, divided by the number of church attendees will be declared the winner!

The Food Drive will also feature raffle prizes, fun photo opportunities and other surprises.

If you have any questions, please contact Joann Kame.
