Devour for Waste Not: Feeding Arizona's hungry neighbors

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Devour for Waste Not with 3TV, Devour Phoenix and Waste Not. This two-week campaign consists of 12 local restaurants using local ingredients and products to make one dish per restaurant. Proceeds from each dish go toward Waste Not and their mission to feed our hungry neighbors in Arizona. Our goal is to raise enough money to feed 100,000 people. Enjoy a delicious dish featuring the Valley's finest local food growers and producers while feeding our neighbors July 17 through July 31. $1 feeds six people through Waste Not.
