The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona

Our Mission

  • The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona
    • responds to the root causes of hunger,
    • and seeks to restore
      • dignity,
      • health,
      • opportunity
      • and hope
    • to people living in poverty.
  • Our mission is to
    • change lives in the communities we serve
      • by feeding the hungry today,
        • and building a healthy, hunger-free tomorrow.

Our Work

  • Our programs include
    • emergency food assistance
    • and free meals — as well as…
      • a farmers’ market,
      • community gardens,
      • nutrition education,
      • culinary training,
      • support for local growers and food systems,
      • advocacy,
      • and more.
  • We partner with over 350 organizations
    • to serve five counties of Southern Arizona
      • over 23,000 square miles.
  • We’re a proud member of Feeding America,
    • a nationwide network
      • of food banks
      • and hunger relief organizations.
  • In 2018, we were named Food Bank of the Year by Feeding America,
    • in large part because of our innovative work
      • rescuing fresh produce from the border of Mexico
      • and redistributing it
        • to local families
        • and other food banks.
