Donations of cash and food made between March 1 and April 30, 2014 to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, its four branch banks and Caridad Community Kitchen are eligible for the Feinstein Challenge. During this nationwide challenge, the Rhode Island-based Feinstein Foundation will provide a partial match for every dollar raised or pound of food donated.
For the 17th consecutive year, $1 million will be divided among hunger-fighting agencies nationwide, including the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona and its branch food banks.
The Feinstein Foundation was founded by Alan Shawn Feinstein and is dedicated to the alleviation of hunger, the importance of community service in education and the values of caring, compassion and brotherhood.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for local businesses, schools, churches and communities to come together and have their contributions of food or dollars matched by the Feinstein Challenge to benefit local families in need,” said Michael McDonald, Community Food Bank CEO.
To make donations eligible for the Feinstein Challenge, they must be received by the Community Food Bank between March 1 and April 30, 2014. Donations may be made online or by calling (520) 882-3296.
