Three Generations of Women Serve CFB

Three generations of one Arizona family have stepped forward to serve the hungry of Tucson.

In December 2008, 94 year-old Jesse Chatham joined her granddaughter, Eileen Starace to assemble Snak Paks for the Community Food Bank.  Starace is a member of the Desert Skies United Methodist Church, one the Food Bank’s partners in the Snak Paks program.  Chatham and Starace are respectively the mother and daughter of Margaret Steele, a longstanding Community Food Bank board member who passed away in 2006.  Eileen is her daughter.

Through their actions, these three women have demonstrated a passion for helping the Community Food Bank and the vulnerable children it serves in Tucson.

The Snak Paks program works with community partners like the Desert Skies United Methodist Church to feed children who are identified as chronically hungry.  Every Friday, these children go home with a back pack full of healthy snacks to see them through the weekend. The process is repeated each week through the school year. Currently, over 600 children receive a Snak Pak.

Many of our fellow Tucsonans face the very real threat of going hungry not only during the holiday season, but throughout the year. The Community Food Bank relies on volunteers like Jesse Chatham, Margaret Steele and Eileen Starace.  The food bank’s volunteers contribute over 84,000 hours of service annually, the equivalent of 40 full time employees.



Tucson Girls Chorus and Daisy Mae’s Steak House Team up to Benefit CFB

The Tucson Girls Chorus will team up with Daisy Mae’s Steak House on Saturday, January 17, 2009 to benefit the Community Food Bank.

For many years patrons of Daisy Mae’s have stapled dollar bills, with personal notes, to the walls of the steakhouse.  In 2001, after 9/11, local firefighters removed bills from the walls and sent over $7,000 to the New York Fire Department.

Dan Brady and his staff at Daisy Mae’s have donated the collection of bills to the Community Food Bank and with the help of the Tucson Girls Chorus will retrieve the bills from the walls on Saturday, January 17th beginning at 2:00 PM.  Daisy Mae’s Steak House is located at 2735 W. Anklam Road.

For every $1 donated, the food bank can distribute $9 worth of food.  If the public would like to support this event with a donation, they may call Daisy Mae’s at (520) 792-8888.

“The Tucson Girls Chorus is proud to help make this donation to the Community Food Bank,” said Beth Walkup, Interim Executive Director of the Tucson Girls Chorus.  “In addition to the music experience, community involvement is an important part of the mission of the Girls Chorus.  We appreciate the help from Dan Brady and his staff at Daisy Mae’s.”

The Tucson Girls Chorus will be assisted by volunteers from Davis Monthan Air Force Base.

For additional information, contact Jack Parris at (520) 622-0525 x 215 or Cell at (520) 444-5412.
