Still Time to Support the Community Food Bank In Walmart’s “Fighting Hunger Together” Initiative

There is still time to support the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona in Walmart’s “Fighting Hunger Together” initiative to help fight hunger and make a positive difference.

The 200 US communities hardest hit by unemployment were identified to participate in the initiative and Southern Arizona is on that list.  The community with the most votes will receive $1 million to help fight hunger. The next 20 communities will each receive $50,000 for hunger relief.

The Food Bank is in the running to win the $1 million grant from Walmart.  The public can help by visiting Walmart’s Facebook page ( and vote by clicking on “Arizona” and “Tucson Area.”  Only one vote per person per day is allowed, but the more people who vote, the better chance the Food Bank has of winning.  Voting ends April 30, 2012.  Those wishing to vote may also go online to to vote and learn more about Walmart’s “Fighting Hunger Together.”
