United Food Bank and Resolution Copper partnered Thursday, April 23 to host a drive-through food box distribution to assist 1,200 families of the White Mountain Apache Tribe.
The event, which took place at the Hondah Casino, delivered more than 62,000 pounds (the equivalent of 75,000 meals) of much-needed food to this remote community.
The White Mountain Apache Tribe on the Fort Apache Reservation is located 200 miles northeast of Phoenix. The Tribe is part of United Food Bank’s 19,500-square-mile service area covering the East Valley and eastern Arizona.
This marks the largest mobile food distribution in United Food Bank’s 35-year history.
