WE SERVE FAMILIES IN NEED

We want to do more, and you can help!

Caring Coalition provides food for families struggling with food insecurity. Each of the 25 families we serve receive two boxes of two boxes of non-perishable food weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. Many of our families continue to deal with the rising cost of housing housing and gas. At the same time SNAP benefits (formerly food stamps) have decreased by 50% for many families. Families are struggling to meet monthly expenses.

Delivery Volunteers meet with a Caring Coalition staff member at our storage unit. They will receive a list of recipients and their contact information. Prepacked boxes , stored on location are loaded into the volunteers car. Volunteers typically deliver to 4-6 families per week. Many of our families are located in Central Phoenix.

Mission Statement

Caring Coalition is a grassroots effort, providing access to good nutrition for Phoenix families who are struggling to feed their children.

Description

Caring Coalition AZ started in January of 2014 as a backpack food program, providing weekend care packages for downtown Phoenix children in need. In response to the onset of the COVID 19 Pandemic, our mission pivoted to providing food boxes to whole families. One in four downtown Phoenix children experience food insecurity. We work with local schools to identify children and families in need and provide them with two boxes of non perishable food weekly or bi monthly as needed.

Caring Coalition AZ started in November of 2013 with neighbors pitching in to help a local family with food for their Thanksgiving meal. Since then we have become a non-profit, recognized by the IRS and a Qualifying Charitable Organization for the Arizona Tax Credit.
Caring Coalition. We are presently serving 90 Preschool-12th grade students each week. As of 2019 more that 10,000 weekend care packages have been provided!

We have opportunities for volunteers who would like to deliver food to families, pack food boxes and help with stocking shelves. In addition we have packing events monthly.
