Donations of cash and food made between March 1 and April 30, 2013 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 16th consecutive year, $1 million will be divided among hunger-fighting agencies nationwide, including the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.
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 great opportunity for local communities to come together and have their contributions of food and dollars matched by the Feinstein Challenge to benefit local families in need,” said Bill Carnegie, Food Bank President/CEO. “These donations are needed now more than ever.”
To make donations eligible for the Feinstein Challenge, they must be received by the Community Food Bank between March 1 and April 30, 2013. Donations may be made online at www.communityfoodbank.org or by calling Liz Westrick at (520) 882-3296.
