For Immediate Release
South Mountain Community College Announces St. Mary's Discount Food Sale Dates for Spring 2012
Distribution will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., in front of the Performing Arts Center at SMCC, 7050 S. 24th St., Phoenix (just north of Baseline Rd.)
"The sale of food boxes has become a tradition at SMCC," said Buddy Cheeks, Student Life Director at SMCC. "The community appreciates low-cost, high-quality food and our college employees and students enjoy volunteering in this program."
Cheeks stressed that it is not a government program or a handout, and that 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 a variety of items:
Bonus items, such as potatoes, may be available at no cost.
For additional information about the food program, call 602.305.5830.
South Mountain Community College is one of the ten Maricopa Community Colleges.
