TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Zane's Law asks for the public's help with food donations to help complete its mission to serve approximately 800 meals to hungry school children in Tucson this summer.

Zane's Law will supply the meals to Roskruge Bilingual Magnet Middle School students through its sponsorship of the pilot project, No Hungry Kids Tucson, a program that provides food to kids who rely on school-supplied meals.

"No child should go without food, especially not our children here in Tucson," said Claudia Zanes, co-founder of Zane's Law. "As a parent and as a community member, I wanted Zane's Law to be involved in this pilot project because I know it will create immediate change in a short amount of time."

Zane's Law officials said non-perishable food items needed for No Hungry Kids Tucson include:

  • Cereal
  • Granola/cereal bars
  • Peanut butter & jelly
  • Macaroni & cheese
  • Instant oatmeal
  • Ramen noodle soups
  • Other canned goods

Donations can be dropped off at the following Zane's Law office locations through July 26:

  • 3501 E. Speedway Blvd., Suite 101
  • 1185 W. Irvington Road, Suite 155

A leader in the pilot project, Nadia Valle, is the founder of Wings for Women, which offers programs and guidance resources for homeless and impoverished women. She said No Hungry Kids Tucson is an extension of that mission and is excited to have Zane's Law as a sponsor.

Those wishing to donate to No Hungry Kids Tucson can send mail to Wings for Women, P.O. Box 23369, Tucson, AZ 85734, or visit wingsforwomentucson.org and click on the PayPal link. Interested volunteers for No Hungry Kids Tucson can call (520) 406-6345.
