Lalo Cota in front of Mural at Nourish PHX

Phoenix Magazine: Lalo Cota Teams Up with Local Food Bank to Create Arizona-Inspired Fruit Mural

Previously, Cota has painted murals on the exterior walls of Phoenix schools as part of the health care giant’s community-supporting program. Although his artwork usually depicts funky skeletons and Chicano themes, he believes in the “Holy Trinity of art, food and music,” which his Nourish Phoenix mural showcases in its round shapes and bright colors.

April News: Meet Adrian

Adrian came to us last week in our clothing room needing help with finding the perfect work gear and some clothing for his new job that he was starting in about one week!   He is wearing the overalls he received on his last visit which he loves for everyday wear.  Adrian and another client, who are both veterans, really hit it off and started helping each other put together some outfits while they told their stories of life in the past year.   Both men were teary-eyed and so thankful for the food, clothing and job assistance support they received from NourishPHX (fka ICM Food & Clothing Bank).
