The first ever We Are United Luncheon, produced by the Women’s Leadership Council of Valley of the Sun United Way, was a success, and we could not have gotten there without the support of our generous sponsors, community leaders and Valley enthusiasts of our work.
Our goal was to fund as many classrooms in Maricopa county with the tools to be able to serve students Breakfast in the Classroom. At our luncheon, over 500 like-minded individuals united to serve the needs of children in our community raising over $150,000 for Breakfast in the Classroom.

More on Breakfast in the Classroom
Breakfast is more than just a morning meal to many children in our community. For them, it’s a vital pathway to successful learning, good health and a sense of security. In Arizona, 28% of children live in food insecure homes. Breakfast in the Classroom is an innovative program supported by United Way, the Arizona Department of Education and the Dairy Council of Arizona to make sure all kids in our community start the day off with a nutritious meal. Because of your generous support and donation Breakfast is being served directly in the Classroom and students are ready to learn.
