PHOENIX — It’ll be business as normal for the St. Mary’s Food Bank during the holiday season.

The organization said in a press release on Friday that their location near the intersection of Thomas Road and 31st Avenue will stay open every day except for Christmas and New Year’s Day, serving anyone in need of food across the state.

The food bank expects an onslaught of demand for their services during the last two weeks of the year, according to the release, with several other food banks closing their doors for the holidays.

St. Mary’s will stay open until 1 p.m. on Christmas Eve, with full shopping carts of meats, dairy, non-perishables, fruits and vegetables available for pick up.

The food bank will also be open during the week between Christmas and New Year’s, as well as in the first week of the new year.
