Food bank to only give out one food box a month per family

Beginning Jan. 1, the Community Food Bank will only distribute one family food box per household per month. The agency said in a news release that it has seen a dramatic increase in demand this year and is 46 percent over budget for purchased food. It also has given out 36 percent more food through Nov. 30 than it had over the same period in 2007.

Families requiring more than one box a month will be referred to the agency’s family advocate to “determine what other help may be available” to them.

Food will be distributed at its main office, 3003 S. Country Club Road, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and at its other satellite facilities around the county.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
