A new Arizona license plate that benefits the fight against hungry is now available.
The Hunger Relief specialty license plate costs $25, and $17 of that goes directly to numerous organizations that fight hunger across the state, including our very own Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona. It´s pretty snazzy looking, too, with a nice green background and wheat-stalk motif.
I´ll post the press release with all the pertinent details after the jump.
