Snowbird Food Drive

Snowbird Food Drive

Third Annual Snow Bird Food Drive

Before you head back to cooler summer climates take a look in your pantry. Those non-perishable food items will go a long way in helping others in your community!

As temperatures rise and many temporary residents leave Arizona for cooler climates, local food banks see an increased demand for food.  When the desert heats up, utility bills rise, kids are out of school (meaning no subsidized lunches) and Arizonans who are already struggling have an uphill battle to feed themselves and their families.

You can make a difference!

Starting March 14 through April 1, clear out your pantries and donate your non-perishable items to St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance. Food donations can be dropped off at the following locations:
