Yuma Community Food Bank asks for Thanksgiving donations
CEO Shara Whitehead says the Food Bank is providing meals for 500 families a week
YUMA, Ariz. (KECY, KYMA) – The Yuma Community Food Bank is preparing for Thanksgiving and they’re asking for your help.
The Bank’s Thanksgiving food drive is in full swing and they’re looking for all the holiday classics.
Turkeys, hams, canned yams and veggies, instant mashed potatoes, and more will be gladly accepted.
The Food Bank’s CEO Shara Whitehead says they’re currently serving 500 local families a week.
But community donations are down, making this year’s drive even more essential.
“We’re not getting as much. Supply chain issues is a part of it, inflation is a larger part of it, so people don’t have the money to spend. They’re using what they’re buying,” Whitehead said.
Items can be dropped off to the food bank Monday through Friday.
The food drive runs through November 18.
