Mesa, AZThe City of Mesa is partnering with United Food Bank and Mesa Chamber of Commerce for the Christmas in July Food Drive.  The campaign is designed to capture the holiday feeling of giving and help United Food Bank when the shelves are low while the need increases.  The most needed items include peanut butter, canned meats, canned fruits and vegetables, rice and pasta. No glass jars, baby food or opened food will be accepted.


The Mesa Chamber of Commerce is having a friendly food donation competition with its counterparts in Tempe, Chandler and Gilbert to see which organization will collect the “most pounds per membership” while businesses from all four communities are competing to collect the “most pounds per employee.”  Organizations can participate in Christmas in July by hosting a food drive or by visiting a business taking part.
