Food for Kidz still strong in Surprise senior community

Sunflower RV Resort donates to Valley View Food Bank

Posted

In the past five years, Sunflower Food for Kidz has packaged 561,000 meals for the Valley View Food Bank.

Because of the COVID pandemic, the sixth-annual event had to be cancelled this year. Knowing the need was greater than ever, Food for Kidz held a fundraiser and the residents of Sunflower RV Resort, 16501 N. El Mirage Road, stepped up to help the food bank.

Sunflower is an age 55 and up community.

On March 9, Jessie Ramirez, founder of the Valley View Community Food Bank, was surprised with a check for $20,610.

The Valley View Food Bank is celebrating its 14th year this month.

“Sunflower Resort provided the first funds when we started in 2007 and they continue to help us in many ways,” Mr. Ramirez said. “The people who live at Sunflower are amazing. Now with the pandemic, we are serving up to 450 people every day. Every single penny donated is used to buy food to make a good healthy food box for all those in need.”
