Mission Statement

We believe no one should go hungry. This belief inspires the work we do. Through education, advocacy, and the acquisition and distribution of food, working with other like-minded organizations and service agencies serving Pima County, we strive to anticipate and meet the nutritional needs of the hungry in our community.

Description

The Sahuarita Food Bank is an independent and self-governing Agency of the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, run by all volunteers, and serves the nutritionally needy of southern Pima County and Santa Cruz County, mostly Sahuarita. The food bank is hosted by The Good Shepherd, United Church of Christ at 17750 La Canada Drive in Sahuarita. We are a refuge for those who are hungry and thirsty in this hot desert land, and our clients return to us because they feel celebrated when they come. We serve over 180 local families a month, distributing 125,000 lbs. of food a year. We provide USDA Emergency Food Boxes plus an 'as available' assortment of donated food products, including dairy, eggs, and fresh produce, plus cleaning and personal hygiene products.Our BackPack Program serves 110 nutritionally 'at-risk’ Sahuarita children a week, providing them with supplemental healthy food over the weekends.

Would you recommend Sahuarita Food Bank?

by Nancy B. (April 19, 2012)
The Sahuarita Food Bank offers, in addition to the USDA emergency food box, a wide assortment of healthy food items, plus personal hygiene articles. Our clientele is treated respectfully and made to feel welcome. Volunteers receive thorough training during and after their initial orientation.
