NOURISHING OUR COMMUNITY
The Sahuarita Food Bank began in a closet, serving one or two households a week. Now we serve 300 or more households each week in our main food distribution. We also provide hundreds of weekend nutrition BackPacks for low-income students in eight area schools and have two school-based food pantries for nearby communities. In total, we distribute over 1.3 million pounds of food each year.
In early 2022, we opened our brand new 14,300 sq. ft. facility, thanks to many hundreds of capital contributors. To complete our funding campaign, please donate. It is an investment in our future.
Today we are not only a food bank but also a Community Resource Center. We continue to feed more and more people but are also providing programming and services to our visiting households, including health screenings, volunteer tax preparation, an early literacy program, and a parenting program. We plan many more programs and services with an emphasis on health and nutrition, family support, and workforce development.
Donations can be charged to a credit card, or paid by a check made out to Sahuarita Food Bank, and mailed to 17750 X. La Cañada Drive, Sahuarita, AZ 85629.
