Tucson nonprofit finds new way to fight poverty

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

On Fox 11 Daybreak, nonprofit Tucson Free Pantry is helping those in need in a new way.

According to the University of Arizona Poverty Project, one in three children lives in poverty in Tucson, and Tucson has the eighth-highest poverty rate in the US at 25.7 percent.

Chaparrelle Mogavero-Cline and Peyton Prater from Tucson Free Pantry tell us about this new project.
