Arizona is indeed the sunshine state. It has an impressively warm, sunny climate — ideal for producing bounties of citrus, such as oranges, grapefruits, lemons and limes. It's only natural then, that St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance in Phoenix takes advantage its surroundings.
At Feeding America we talk a lot about the power of the Network - that's the combined strength of our over 200 food banks working together to help fight hunger in their communities. But to see it in action is really something special.
Two years after volunteering at St. Mary's with Auburn University prior to the national championship game, the Ducks made a return visit to the world's first food bank Thursday and invited their Fiesta Bowl foes from Kansas State to help fight hunger in Arizona.
