The Sahuarita Food Bank and Community Resource Center got a welcomed gift this week when The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints dropped off the biggest food donation the food bank has ever received.

The 38,000-pound donation was triple the amount of their largest donation to date and included pallets of items like soups, beans, applesauce, flour, dish soaps, laundry detergent and more.
