As school closures continue this week, organizations are stepping up to provide meals to students who aren’t in class. St. Mary’s Food Bank has joined the list of those offering food.

Pick-up locations will be spread throughout the Valley, including sites in Phoenix, Peoria, Avondale and Glendale.
