TUCSON - On this "#GivingTuesday," the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona is asking for donations of canned vegetables to help fill the food boxes distributed to hungry families every month.
The Community Food Bank distributes over 30,000 food boxes every month, and the organization continually needs items including soup, tomato products, cereal, canned vegetables, macaroni & cheese, rice, macaroni, pinto beans, peanut butter, canned fruit or juice and canned meat, according to a news release. Their supply of canned vegetables is extremely low right now. A semi-truck load, or 40,000 units, of canned vegetables are used each month in the organization's food boxes.
Any type of canned vegetables may be donated, and there are a number of locations to drop them off. In addition to the dozens of Kristi's Kids Season 4 Hope boxes found at various locations around Tucson, donations can also be made at the Winterhaven Festival of Lights from December 15 to December 29, and at the Community Food Bank itself, located at 3003 S. Country Club Rd.
