The E&J Gallo Winery – Taste of the NFL and local Southern Arizona restaurants are teaming up to benefit the Community Food Bank now through December 31, 2010.

The Taste of the NFL is a non-profit organization whose goal is to address the needs of the hungry and homeless by raising money and heightening awareness through special programs. One in six Americans are struggling with the realty of hunger and food insecurity.

Currently, fifty-one restaurants in Southern Arizona are participating in the Taste of the NFL.  See restaurants below. When you go to one of these restaurants, order one of these E&J Gallo wines: William Hill, Louis M. Martini, Ecco Domani, Alamos, Mirassou or MacMurray and a portion of the proceeds from wine sales will be donated to the Community Food Bank to help feed hungry families.

This is the 14th consecutive year the E&J Gallo Winery will make a significant donation to the Taste of the NFL in the fight against hunger.

The Community Food Bank serves five counties in Southern Arizona including Pima, Santa Cruz, Cochise, Graham and Greenlee Counties and last year distributed over 27 million pounds of food.

For more information on the Taste of the NFL, contact Donna Summers at (520) 603-4004.
