Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 28, 2013
The Running with the Bulls Festival will team up with Foothills Food Bank this October to help fight hunger in Phoenix, Arizona. The festival will be held October 25-27, 2013 at Hogs & Horses Arena off of Main Street in Cave Creek, Arizona and will be accepting food donations at the door to help build the local food banks food supply prior to the holiday season.
As incentive to encourage food donations, The Running with the Bulls festival will give away a ticket to enter a $250 gift basket giveaway for each non-perishable food item donated. Both festival attendees and the general public are encouraged to bring food donations to support the cause. All donations will be entered into the prize drawing, whether attending the event or not.
The Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center provides an emergency supply of food, referral information and financial assistance to individuals and families in the foothills area that are in a crisis situation. The north valley is often thought of as an area of well-to-do communities with middle to upper class residents who are getting along just fine. Pleasant urban surroundings disguise the fact that many north valley residents are barely making ends meet.
“The food bank is privately funded, and relies solely on the donations and kindness of others to keep their organization running. Both food and monetary donations are always needed,” says the event organizer Chuck Warren. “This festival gives us a chance to give back to the local community and make a difference for the 2013 Holiday season.”
The most needed food donation items include: canned vegetables, broth, canned pastas, soups, chili, canned tuna, canned chicken, rice, pasta, canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, potato sides, jelly, sugar, flour, tea, and dried beans. There is also a need for diapers size 5 & 6.
Food donations will be accepted on Saturday, October 26 and Sunday, October 27 during the hours of 10 am – 5pm. Only non-perishable items may be donated. For more information about Foothills Food Bank, visit http://www.foothillsfoodbank.com.
