What's happening in the kitchen?

Our commercial kitchen is always in action! Whether we are preparing for distribution, sorting grocery rescue, cooking meals, catering or holding classes, there's always something going on!


The Sahuarita Food Bank offers several food distribution programs, all of which are free. Our programs provide fresh and nutritious food to those who are most at risk—seniors, children, single parents with children, the disabled, and families where the primary provider is unemployed or underemployed.

This program is a way to connect with the community by providing an option for a healthy, homemade prepared meal. The meals are for purchase and all of the proceeds go back into the food bank. So while you are getting a tasty meal, you are also supporting our operations.

Our catering program benefits the community by providing food for parties, businesses, etc. The food is prepared by volunteers and students under the direction and supervision of our Culinary Manager and all of the proceeds go back into the operations of the food bank.



We offer a variety of cooking classes at any given time including: Line and Prep, Cooking for Health, Kids Cooking Basics, Adult Cooking Basics, Make and Take Classes, Specialty Holiday Workshops and more.


Want to volunteer in the kitchen?

We are always looking for help in the kitchen! We offer kitchen shifts sorting produce from 7:30am-10:30am and 10:15am-1:15pm Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. We also occasionally need help prepping for catering events and Meals2Go. If this is something you're interested in, click the button below or email our Culinary Manager with any questions.
