The Marana Community Food Bank has announced the addition of a new member to its Advisory Board. John Procaccino was elected to the board on April 9.
Procaccino, a resident of the Picture Rocks area, enjoyed a long and successful career as a custom homebuilder in Tucson. The downturn in the economy has prompted his move into more diversified construction-related projects and has offered him a deeper appreciation for the needs of food bank clients. His appointment completes the 11-member board.
“John is a terrific addition to our advisory board,” said Executive Direction Linda Hampton. “Now that we have a full board we can begin the challenging task of visioning the role of the Marana Community Food Bank in the future of Marana. John’s perspective and experiences will be a welcome contribution to this effort.”
The Marana Community Food Bank provides emergency food assistance primarily to residents of Rillito, Cortaro, Avra Valley, Oro Valley, Marana, Picture Rocks, and northwest Tucson.
More than 1,900 families receive help from the Marana Community Food Bank monthly. These people include working families, seniors, veterans and children. The Marana Community Food Bank is a branch of the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.
