Got chicken? Tucson sure will when more than 30, 000 pounds of the palatable poultry is delivered to the Community Food Bank on Monday, Sept. 21, according to a news release from the food bank.
Tyson Food, Inc., joined forces with the League of United Latin American Citizens to bring this delicacy to hungry families, churches and other organizations via the food bank.
Thousands of families across southern Arizona will benefit from this donation, said Bill Carnegie, president/CEO of the Community Food Bank.
He also noted in 2008 the food bank distributed 22 million pounds of food, enough to furnish more than 48,000 meals each day. Last year’s demand was nearly 40 percent higher than the previous year, he said.
Carnegie and LULAC member Richard Fimbres will be unloading the chicken truck(s) at 9 a.m. at the food bank, 3003 S. Country Club Road, if anyone wants to truck down to watch.
No word on when the chicken will be available for distribution.
In the meantime, those who can’t go watch raw chicken being unloaded from a truck may enjoy the chicken photo slide show below.
So, what do you think? Please respond:
a. Snappy. That place looks more fun than a barrel of drunk monkeys.
b. Crappy. That place looks less fun than a barrel of cow pies.
c. I’m scared the couple who went missing may be haunting the place.
d. I’m too snobbish and close-minded to appreciate anything other than a cookie-cutter condo.
Dear dad got a duck for Father’s Day. Not because he hunts, but because I wanted to go with a traditional Father’s Day image, which leaves us with a mere three choices: ducks, neckties or a pipe (the smoking kind, not the type that you use to bash in a skull).
Dad was fascinated with his duck, even though he admitted at first glance he thought it a pelican. He also promised not to let the darling duck befall the same fate as the chicken I made my mom for Mother’s Day.
WARNING: The following sequence of photos contains disturbing images.
Some of you may have seen this horrific montage which I posted around Mother’s Day, but I post it again in the hopes of saving chickens who cross the road in the future.
Mom claims she was trying to help the chicken cross the road, but these photos disclose otherwise.
What did you get your dad for Father’s Day? A duck? A necktie? A pipe?
