Four local food banks will be receiving checks to assist with the services they provide to people in need during these difficult economic times.

At the time the food tax was approved in March 2010, the Phoenix City Council approved a budget plan to provide $250,000 of food tax funds to establish partnerships with local food banks serving Phoenix residents. Phoenix is the only city in the Valley that provides such funds.

Mayor Phil Gordon and City Manager David Cavazos will present checks to the following food banks:

10 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 21 - ICM Food and Clothing Bank, 501 S. Ninth Ave. - $67,500

11 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 21 - Desert Mission, Inc., 9229 N. Fourth St. - $72,000

3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 21 - St. Vincent de Paul, 420 W. Watkins St. - $85,500

3:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 22 - St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance, 2831 N. 31st Ave. - $25,000.
