Cardinals, State Farm to provide 8,000 holiday meals for 500 families
The Arizona Cardinals announced on Thursday that the team and State Farm will be providing 8,000 meals to 500 families from Mesquite High School this holiday season.
The meals will be prepared by Craft Culinary Concepts at State Farm Stadium and then picked up by preselected families at a contactless drive-thru at the school on Monday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Mesquite High School is located at 500 S. McQueen Road in Gilbert.
Each family identified by the school will receive four home-cooked meals, bread and a gallon of milk.
“Mesquite is honored to partner with State Farm and the Arizona Cardinals to help provide for those in need during these difficult times,” Mesquite High School Principal Rod Huston said in a press release. “This year has hit so many hard-working families, leaving them feeling lost and alone and unsure of how to make ends meet.
“Mesquite understands the value of being good neighbors and building relationships with our community and its families. Allowing us to help these students start 2021 in a positive fashion will go a long way in helping them have a great second semester.”
