"A child should never have to go to bed hungry or wonder where their next meal is coming from."

As part of Hunger Action Month presented by Fry’s Food Stores, the three West Valley Nothing Bundt Cakes locations will perform a “Sweet Act of Joy” for St. Mary’s Food Bank on Tuesday, September 17.

The locations in Glendale, Goodyear and Surprise will donate 100% of all sales from that day to support St. Mary’s Food Bank and its programs. Every dollar spent at the stores that day will allow St. Mary’s to provide seven meals to those in need.

The Goodyear location is at 13824 W. McDowell Road, Suite 106.

Customers will have an opportunity to help raise the total not only by buying products but by making donations at the register that will 100% benefit the food bank.

“It is very rare that a business owner will donate 100% of a day to a charity and we are extremely grateful to Nothing Bundt Cakes for this day of giving to benefit the Food Bank,” St. Mary’s President and CEO Tom Kertis said. “We encourage everyone to support Nothing Bundt Cakes on Tuesday, September 17, and know that you not only will go home with some treats but you will be helping those in need at the same time.”

Nothing Bundt Cakes co-owner Robert Kelly is looking forward to this first fundraiser for the food bank.

“We hope that by holding this fundraiser for St. Mary’s, will we help feed many hungry people directly by raising money to buy food and support St. Mary’s programs. … and just as importantly, if not more so, we raise awareness of this terrible problem in our society, that so many of us just don’t see. A child should never have to go to bed hungry or wonder where their next meal is coming from. Please join us and help feed those less fortunate.”

September is Hunger Action Month and this day of giving is one of 30 ways in 30 days that everyone has a chance to fight hunger in unique and creative ways. For more information, visit
