Community Food Bank is now offering “Citrus Drop-Off” locations

A refreshing way to give back in the new year

When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade or sometimes donate them instead.

The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona isn’t hosting its traditional “Super Citrus Saturday” collections this year, but they are offering citrus drop-off locations.

So, orange you glad there’s another option to donate?

The decision to cancel the annual collection was made so that the Community Food Bank can focus on a drive-thru food distribution during the current pandemic. For anyone who has extra fruit on their trees can pick and gather the citrus and bring it to several partner agencies of the Food Bank who are accepting citrus donations.
