Los Angeles, CA (December 21, 2011) – On Wednesday, December 21st, 2011, Tinsel Korey, of The Twilight Saga film series will return to St., Mary Food Bank in Phoenix, Arizona to volunteer and assist in the campaign against hunger in hopes that her efforts will help create awareness of hunger in America.

Last year, while working with, Korey became aware of the hunger many American families faced during the holidays. She states, “I helped last year with’s hunger campaign and didn't realize that millions of people in the US go hungry every year. It was a harsh reality." She now continues to show her support of St. Mary’s Food Bank and the fight against hunger by volunteering her time this year. She goes on to say “I decided to go back this year to show my support and to continue raising awareness of how many people go hungry, and how important it is to donate to your local food bank, whether it be food, monetary or time.”

St. Mary’s Food Bank is a non-sectarian, nonprofit that helps alleviate hunger by gathering and distributing food to hunger sites. They serve approximately two-thirds of Arizona’s 15 counties and is committed to easing hunger in Arizona through the vision of John Van Hengel.
