Sedona, AZ — The Two Fer Tuesday “Blessing Group” is sponsoring a new Two Fer Tuesday on Tuesday, September 20, to help both humans AND pets (a true Two Fer!) that are in desperate need of food.
Compassionate Valley residents are asked to help celebrate the one-year anniversary of the “Fill the Need”Food Bank in the Village of Oak Creek with donations of food and pet food to help the underserved communities of the VOC, Rimrock, Cornville, Camp Verde and Lake Montezuma.
Food costs are skyrocketing. Grocery costs are up 13.1% (largest increase since 1979): eggs up 38%, flour up 22.7%, milk up 15.6%, ground beef up 9.7%, bacon up 9.2%, fruits and veggies up 9.3%.
Police reports show people are reduced to stealing meat, cheese, spices, sausages, and over the counter meds from grocery stores.
