Foothills Food Bank holding ribbon cutting to celebrate expansion


CAVE CREEK – The Foothills Food Bank & Resource Center is holding a ribbon cutting/open house on Saturday, Sept. 24, starting at 10 a.m. This event will celebrate the expansion of the food bank.

“Foothills Food Bank extended the front of the building south to allow for more warehousing in the main building,” said food bank director Pam DiPietro in a September media release. “Our reception and packing area moved to the new addition allowing more space for foodstuff storage for our clients.”

At the open house, refreshments will be offered. Guests can take tours of the expanded facility. RSVPS are appreciated to help plan for the event.

DiPietro said the food bank continues to seek $100,000 in funds from donors to cover the cost of the new addition. Donors can pay via credit card, cash or PayPal. For a $150 donation, you can get your name on a glass tile on the building’s mural.

For more information, to RSVP for the event, and to donate, call the Foothills Food Bank & Resource Center at (480) 488-1145.
