WHAT IS FEEDING OUR FUTURE?
Feeding our Future is a fundraising campaign that decreases the number of hungry students in Tempe, and increases the amount of fresh food distributed to all hungry families, both in Tempe and the East Valley at large. A charitable donation of $2 feeds a hungry child for one weekend, and $80 feeds a child for an entire school year.
WHAT IS THE CAMPAIGN’S GOAL?
Feeding our Future’s goal is to raise $56,000, which will support students at Thew Elementary with weekend food backpacks, and help the United Food Bank replace the broken swamp coolers in their food warehouse. Once our campaign is completed, we will have provided food directly to 393 hungry children for a year, and enabled the United Food Bank to distribute an additional one million pounds of fresh produce every year throughout our community.
HOW CAN I HELP?
PayPal: All donations made through our PayPal account are tax-deductible, and will be split between feeding students at Thew Elementary and replacing the swamp coolers at the United Food Bank.
United Food Bank Tax Credits: Donations made directly to the United Food Bank qualify for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit, which means a donation up to $400 for a single filer (or $800 for a married couple) can be claimed as dollar-for-dollar tax credits. All donations made through the United Food Bank are earmarked for replacing the swamp coolers.
April 1st Fundraiser: Community partners, friends and family are invited to the Feeding our Future fundraising event on April 1st at the Shop Beer Co. All proceeds will go to helping us hit our goal of $56,000. Join us for a night of good food, drinks, and company as we feed our future together! Details to follow.
