Food Distribution On Wednesdays

IMG_0738-websize

Through the Wells Fargo Drive-Up Food Bank, United Food Bank will provide much-needed food items such as produce, bread, dairy and frozen meats to families in across the valley. The food distribution will take place every Wednesday through Oct. 21. People will drive up to the distribution, remain in their vehicles, and pop open the trunks so volunteers can place groceries directly into vehicles. More than 300 families are expected to seek assistance every week.

Volunteers from United Food Bank and Wells Fargo will distribute the boxes of food. No I.D. or information is required to receive food boxes. Clients must wear masks and clean the trunks of their vehicles.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on many families. Many people are struggling financially and facing tough choices between paying for food, shelter, or other necessities. Wells Fargo has a long-standing commitment to help local communities—and especially during challenging times. The bank is underwriting the meals and hosting food distribution at its properties in more than 20 cities across the country this summer. 

“The Apache Junction community is so appreciative of the United Food Bank, Wells Fargo and all those that made this happen,” said Apache Junction Mayor Jeff Serdy. “Many of our residents have been affected as harshly as anyone during this situation so this is a great lift as we continue our recovery.”

The overall goal of the program is to provide more than 50 million meals nationally. This effort is a small way to bring immediate relief to some hard-hit communities, providing a boost to remind each other we will get through this difficult time together.

“No one should have to choose between feeding their family or other basic necessities,” said Lead Region President Don Pearson. “Wells Fargo has a long-standing commitment to help our local communities—especially during challenging times. We are glad to bring nourishment for many families and hope this modest gesture lifts spirits and reminds people that they are not alone.”

“The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are being felt near and far, and the work of organizations like ours has never been so important,” stated Dave Richins, President United Food Bank. “We’re grateful to be part of Wells Fargo COVID-19 giving and allowing us to use one of their branch location in Apache Junction that will allow us to feed more families in need in Arizona.”

With its extensive network of branches and corporate properties, Wells Fargo is using its properties to help expand the reach of food distribution through this program. More information about the Wells Fargo Drive Up Food Bank program, including cities that will host mobile food distribution events, can be found at wellsfargo.com/foodbank.
