"The truly virtuous are those who give food-however great be their own need and want of it - to the needy, and the orphan, and the captive."  

Summer Food Drive Coming to Arizona
Please contribute – nobody should go to bed hungrySponsored by Intel Involved and Intel Muslim Employee Group (IMEG).

Intel Involved and Intel Muslim Employee Group (IMEG) in conjunction with Arizona Great Place to Work team are sponsoring a summer food drive for people and pets September 3-14 to benefit the Cultural Cup Food Bank, a non-profit 501c3, non-sectarian, community-based organization established to provide alternative emergency food for those in need, who have religious, health and dietary food restrictions. Cultural Cup Food Bank is run by volunteers and is 100% supported by donations. Serving over  300 families per week, with emergency food and baby needs such as diapers, food, and milk, Cultural Cup Food Bank also delivers food boxes to the elderly , and disabled "homebound" clients.
Please help alleviate the food shortage for your fellow Arizonans. The statistics on poverty and food shortage are sobering – and you can help make a difference to improve the picture. No one should have to go to bed hungry. According to the U.S. Census Bureau's 2008 American Community Survey, more than 881,000 Arizonans live in poverty with a gross annual income of less than $21,200 for a family of four. Of those receiving emergency food in Arizona:
41% are children and senior citizens
15% of families reported their children skipped meals because there was not enough money for food
28% of the people within the past year had to choose between buying food and paying for medical care
41% of the people within the past year had to choose between buying food and paying for utilities.**
