The full press release is available here. For more information, please contact Jack Parris.



Peanut Butter and Cereal Food Drive

Peanut Butter and Cereal

During the whole month of June at your local Fry’s Food Stores. Donate cereal and peanut butter to the Community Food Bank.

Our goal is to continue to provide healthy food options for children and their families here in Southern Arizona because one in four kids doesn’t know where their next meal is coming from.

Breakfast cereal is easily stored, ready to eat and when consumed with milk, it provides important nutrition that some families would not otherwise get. Peanut Butter is high in protein and calories, plus rich in vitamins.

You can help the food bank during the summer months by providing healthy food for children and families in our community!

On June 3rd, the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona and i97.5 will be at the Fry’s Food store  at 3770 W. Ina Rd. Marana, 85741 from 4-6pm. Please join us and show your support with donations of Peanut Butter and Cereal.
