The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona will again participate in the 17th annual Feinstein Challenge. 

According to a release $1 million will be disbursed to food banks and other hunger-fighting agencies across the U.S. on a match basis. For every dollar or pound of food collected by the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona and its branches in Amado, Green Valley-Sahuarita, Marana and Nogales, the organization will receive a portion of the $1 million.
