AZ Gives Day: Matched donations for the Community Food Bank on Tuesday, April 5

An annual day of online giving to make the community a better place.

There isn’t just one season of giving — it can be all year-round.

The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona is always giving to those who need it most in the community and with Arizona Gives Day in full effect, it’s the perfect opportunity to get involved.

On Tuesday, April 5 or #AZGivesDay dedicates itself to online giving for local nonprofits and you can be part of it by donating here. Plus, all of the donations will be matched — doubling up the contributions.

Food Bank’s Mission

The Community Food Bank aims to end hunger in Arizona. Throughout the state, the Community Food Bank provides emergency food assistance to almost 200,000 people each year. A third of those people are children, whose hunger then negatively affects brain development, behavior, and academic achievement.

Therefore, the Community Food Bank needs all the help they can get in dealing with the causes of hunger and associated poverty, in order to effectively support those affected.

“We’re always here to provide emergency food assistance to anyone who needs it, and to invest in brighter futures for our communities.”

Don’t wait, donate

Arizona Gives Day is actually two days this year and there are plenty of other ways you can help out the local community unrelated to the culinary scene — local animal shelters, for instance.

Support your community and make a donation at azgives.org/communityfoodbank.
