Sun City Food Bank In Danger Of Closing

The Valley View Community Food Bank in Sun City is facing the threat of closure.

Jesse Ramirez, who runs the food bank, said they feed nearly 400 families on a regular basis. But the food bank near 107th Avenue and Peoria Road is behind on rent and only has a few more weeks’ worth of food to pass out.

"I’d have to stand out here and tell them, ‘Today we can’t serve you.’ And, I don’t want to do that. I want to be able to say, ‘Come on in, doors open,’” Ramirez said.

Ramirez said he hopes his landlord will give him a few more weeks to stay open while the food bank reassesses its finances.
