Pam DiPietro, executive director of Foothills Food Bank, said the new program will feature one business each month that partners with, and donates to, the food bank while offering specials to local residents, according to a press release.

“Our first community partner is The Horny Toad in Cave Creek, Arizona,” Ms. DiPietro said in a prepared statement.

“This family dining establishment is providing a number of coupons on behalf of the food bank that you can print from our website, such as pasta deals and drink specials. A portion of the proceeds from these specials will benefit the food bank. This wonderful partnership helps the community while adding local flavor and business incentives for the public.”

Community Partners offers businesses a “menu” from which to choose their level of involvement, and all of the membership funds are donated to the food bank. Foothills Food Bank, in return, promotes the business and its donation(s) while local residents get deals when they donate to the food bank.

Any business can serve as a Community Partner to the food bank. The food bank’s website will display partners.
Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center provides emergency food, financial assistance and other life necessities and resources to individuals and families in the desert foothills.

That area encompasses a 180-square mile area that includes Black Canyon City, Cave Creek, Carefree, Anthem, Desert Hills, New River, north Scottsdale and north Phoenix.
