I love Mesa Day is about supporting our businesses and residents. Thousands of families in our community are food insecure, so we are teaming up with United Food Bank to collect food on Saturday, September 25. 

We will be placing United Food Bank donation boxes for non-perishable food items—such as peanut butter, canned meat, fruits or vegetables, whole-grain cereal, soup, beans, rice, and pasta-- at the entrances of the i.d.e.a. Museum, Arizona Museum of Natural History, Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum, and the Mesa Amphitheatre. Come, enjoy downtown Mesa and help a family in our community. 
Cash donations are always welcome at give.unitedfoodbank.org.


*Activities at I Love Mesa Day will be primarily outdoors. The City of Mesa is actively monitoring the course of the pandemic in Arizona as we strive to balance public safety and the services we provide to residents, businesses and visitors. 

Although masks are optional at City facilities, Mesa encourages visitors to continue to exercise precautions, including getting vaccinated, wearing masks if unvaccinated and staying at home when not feeling well. The date of the event is subject to change.
