Finding Arizona Podcast

Summary: Finding Arizona is a weekly podcast that interviews local business owners. We strive to find out what the owners’ passions are and interesting tid-bits that people don't know about them. The idea is to organically have a conversation with a friend, so the audience can hear everything from the owner’s point of view. We hope the podcast is able to form and gain more fans and followers, and start a community of passionate supporters and entrepreneurs. We love everything about the people who make up the diverse area of Arizona, and we want the people to help make this podcast live and strive.

 PODCAST #104: PEARCE FAMILY FOUNDATION | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:42:05

In 1911 Zebulon Pearce purchased half of a produce, poultry, and egg business. A short time later the other half was purchased by Charles M. Johnson. Thus Johnson Pearce Produce Company was formed on October 24, 1914. On July 22, 1919, Mesa Seed & Feed Company was formed. In 1926, Mesa Seed & Feed Co. and Johnson Pearce Produce Company were merged and became Johnson Pearce Commercial Company with Zeb Pearce as president and major stockholder. From 1911 to 1932 the Pearce family companies were only in the produce and home and farm supply business. When Franklin D. Roosevelt repealed the 18th amendment making the brewing of beer legal again, the Pearce Company won the Coors Beer distributorship due to their cold storage facilities, beginning a long association which has lasted to this day. The Zeb Pearce Companies are one of the oldest family run businesses in Arizona. Today, Zeb’s descendant, Meghan Alfonso has used that family history to demostrate true passion of the heart. The Pearce Family Foundation’s initiative will help families get back on their feet by paying for bills at the home and step in so the parents can focus on their child’s journey to get well. Meghan has a passion for contributing to the community and feels it is important to help those in need. If you wanna learn more go to the following: WEBSITE: FACEBOOK: TWITTER: INSTAGRAM:

 PODCAST #101: WASTE NOT | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:49:39

Waste Not was established in 1987 because of one woman’s passionate desire to help feed the Valley’s hungry men, women and children. From humble beginnings with a donated truck, volunteers began rescuing nutritious perishable food that would otherwise go to waste, delivering it to local shelters on a regular basis. Waste Not delivered 2,500 pounds of food to local shelters in its first year. In 1990, Waste Not received its 501 (c) (3) corporate designation and has grown from a volunteer-led, grassroots effort into a full-fledged professional organization utilizing five refrigerated trucks, with a full-time staff of nine people. In 2011, we delivered over 2 million pounds of nutritious food to 107 recipient agencies. Rescuing wholesome food that would otherwise be thrown away and feeding hungry people is still our mission today and is our only initiative.
