Mobile Pantry

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

An example of our Mobile Pantry Program includes: Driving past a certain primary school in Phoenix one Wednesday each month, and you will see a St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance truck, pallets and pallets of fruit, vegetables and bread—as well as dozens of neighborhood families awaiting this much-needed, nutritious food. This scene is playing out in countless communities throughout Arizona as the St. Mary’s Mobile Pantry program, which has grown to more than 40 sites in both rural and urban locations, bringing perishable food directly to neighborhoods in the greatest need.

“We are happy to offer help and nutritional food to these communities through our Mobile Pantry Distributions,” said St. Mary’s Director of Agency Services, John Nieman. “You can tell by the reaction that we get that we’re really making a difference. The need is large. The food we try to distribute is the kind people need to be eating, but don’t always have access to.”
