Community Food Bank to Benefit From the 64th Annual Winterhaven Festival of Lights December 14 through December 28, 2013
Tucson: The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona will again benefit from the 64th Annual Winterhaven Festival of Lights to be held from December 14 through December 28, 2013. Visitors to the Festival may walk through the neighborhood from 6:00 to 10:00 PM each night.
This year the drive through nights will be December 17th, 27th and 28th.
Visitors will enjoy the colorful home decorations, lights and majestic trees in the Winterhaven neighborhood. While many people walk the streets of Winterhaven, visitors may also enjoy haywagon rides, and heated trolley rides through the neighborhood.
Last year the Winterhaven Festival of Lights collected 33,905 pounds of food and $20,753 for the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona. Winterhaven residents hope to top that total in 2013.
There is no entrance fee for the Festival, but attendees are asked to bring canned food or make a monetary donation to the Food Bank. Most needed items are cereal, canned meats, canned vegetables, canned fruit, canned soups and canned tomato products. Also, a reminder that for every $1 donated to the Food Bank it can distribute four meals.

Hunger is still a formidable foe.
- 16% of Southern Arizonans live below the Federal Poverty Level.
- 1 in 4 Arizona children is at risk of hunger.
- 225,000 people need and receive assistance from the Food Bank every month.
- The Food Bank distributes enough food for 61,000 meals a day.
Looking to the Future: Let’s celebrate LCAH’s 25th Anniversary by renewing our vows! We have a terrific partner in the Community Food Bank. Let’s pledge another 25 years of partnering with the Community Food Bank to bring relief to our neighbors at risk of hunger.
LCAH donations make a difference! The Food Bank works miracles with your money! A whopping 97% of its funds from all sources goes directly into food assistance programs. For every $1 donated, the Food Bank distributes $8.75 of food. That makes your $50 gift worth $437.50 in food. A gift of $250 buys $2,187.50 worth of food! Talk about bang for your buck!
For the 25th year in a row, Legal Community Against Hunger wishes you happy, healthy holidays and a New Year in which you and your loved ones never experience hunger.
