South Mountain Community College 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 2010/11 school year.
Fall dates will be Oct. 1, Nov. 5 and Dec. 3, and distribution will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in front of the SMCC Performing Arts Center, 7050 S. 24th St.
This is not a government program or a handout, and anyone is welcome to purchase the food. St. Mary's Food Bank purchases the food at a reduced price from area grocers and passes the savings along to consumers. There is no paperwork, and all purchases must be in cash.
Participants may choose from five options: $13 pantry box (14 to 16 pantry items); $16 meat pack; $20 griller box; $30 variety box; or $35 meat lovers' box. Bonus boxes are added to the purchases.
