Our Programs

So many people who need our help. So many innovative ways to help.

St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance offers an array of programs designed to help those in need receive food and other types of assistance, and offer opportunities for individuals and organizations to get involved, make financial donations, and volunteer their time, effort and resources. Here are the many ways in which we assist the communities of Arizona:

EFB

EMERGENCY FOOD BOXES

St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance distributes Emergency Food Boxes, at no cost, to individuals and families in need. A majority of those receiving Emergency Food Boxes includes the elderly, children, working families and the homeless.

CommunityKitchen

THE COMMUNITY KITCHEN

The Community Kitchen is a life skills and food service training program for those with barriers to employment. Info sessions are held every Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. and are mandatory to proceed to the next step in the enrollment process.

CKCatering

CK CATERING

CK Catering is staffed by Community Kitchen students who are learning the catering business while working alongside our chef instructors. If you’re planning a party, sit-down lunch, or an elegant dinner—and would like to help your community in the process—count on CK Catering.

HUNGER HEROES

Through our HUNGER HERO Program, St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance recognizes and honors organizations making an extraordinary impact in our community through gifts of volunteer time, food drives, and cash donations.

MOBILE PANTRY

Not everyone can come to a St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance location for emergency boxes, so we have expanded our efforts to bring the Food Bank to them.
