Arby’s restaurants of the greater Tucson area are donating $3,500 to the Community Food Bank’s childhood nutrition programs during #HungerActionMonth. The money was raised through Arby’s annual fundraiser to help youth charities like No Kid Hungry, which partners with local community food banks around the country. A check presentation took place recently at the Food Bank’s main warehouse at 3003 S. Country Club in Tucson.
Currently, Tucson Arby’s restaurants are once again raising funds through the month of September to fight childhood hunger. Arby’s has nine restaurants throughout the greater Tucson area and guests are encouraged to stop by and make a donation. All money raised goes directly to those in need.
“We are grateful for Arby’s support and look forward to continuing our partnership to serve those in need in southern Arizona,” says Michael McDonald, CEO of the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.
September is #HungerActionMonth and the public is encouraged to get involved in activities and events to raise awareness about hunger. Find ways to get involved here.
“We want to put a meal on the table for all of Tucson, including for those who are in need,” adds Jami Salyers, partner at Irish Beef, the Tucson Arby’s franchisee. “We are honored to support the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona and ask the Tucson community to join us in giving back to such a great organization.” Tucson Arby’s restaurants are owned and operated by Irish Beef.
