Nourishing Arizona Communities Together with United Food Bank
April 6 Update: We are excited to announce that Arizonians showed up to join us in giving back to the United Food Back. With your help, a total of $62,750 dollars was raised which includes our matching donation of $15,000! Donations will be used to provide 300,000 meals to families facing hunger in Phoenix!
Members of our team were also amped to volunteer their time on AZ Gives Day to pack 1,190 bags that will be used to locally fight hunger in the Valley of the Sun.
Original post from March 24: Lerner and Rowe Gives Back is dedicated to helping fight hunger in Arizona! As such, we’ve partnered with United Food Bank to kick off early giving for Arizona Gives Day! More specifically, this year we’ve agreed to generously match donations up to $15,000 to the United Food Bank to fight hunger in Arizona.
Donate today to help provide 150,000 meals for AZ families facing hunger by visiting azgives.org/unitedfoodbank to give!
How United Food Bank Changes Lives
United Food Bank helps lead the fight against hunger in the East Valley and eastern Arizona by providing food and more to over 165 nonprofit hunger relief partner agencies and programs, as well as child nutrition and senior meal programs.
After the COVID-19 pandemic hit the country, the need for food rose exponentially across the state. In 2020 alone, the food bank distributed more than 27 million pounds of food, providing 22.5 million meals. This total was a 20 percent increase over 2019.
Join us in giving back to help provide nutritious food and hope to those who currently don’t know where their next meal is coming from. And remember, any dollar amount donated will be appreciated and counts double as our team will match every dollar up to $15,000!
