SIERRA VISTA — The number of local hungry people is growing.
And the main local food bank in Sierra Vista, operated by the St. Vincent de Paul Society, is seeing an increase in the number of people who show up for food boxes.
“There has been a 21 percent increase in the past year,” said food bank volunteer Bob McIntosh.
This Saturday the food bank and the local Elks Lodge 2065 are holding a “Stuff the St. Vincent de Paul Society Food Bank Trailer.”
Lodge officer Bob Conte said his wife, Sue, and Shirley Dixon, are heading the special project.
