Food insecurity is a problem that 2 million Arizonans face with every year. In fact, nearly 30% of Arizona residents are considered “working poor,” living on wages that barely cover housing and basic necessities. With little money to spare, many simply go without meals or have no other choice than to purchase the cheapest groceries in order to feed themselves and their families. Without consistent access to healthy food, children are more likely to struggle with educational setbacks, and entire families are in danger of other health-related issues, such as Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and obesity. At Telgian, we knew we needed to help. So, the 2019 Telgian Holiday Food Drive in partnership with the St. Mary’s Food Bank, was held to help those in need during the holiday season.
1000 pounds of non-perishable food items were collected during the Telgian Holiday Food Drive and delivered to the Food Bank. Many thanks to all who participated!
