South Mountain Community College (SMCC) employees and students will once again help their neighbors by packing and selling discounted boxes of high-quality food for the St. Mary’s Westside Food Bank Alliance throughout the 2011/2012 school year.

The next monthly sales event will take place on Friday, December 2. Distribution will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., in front of the Performing Arts Center at SMCC, 7050 S. 24th St., Phoenix (just north of Baseline Rd.)
