Food Bank

Food Bank Volunteers

Each year AZCEND distributes over 17,000 food boxes with enough food to feed over 50,000 adults and children. If you are in need of food, assistance is available in the form of Emergency Food Boxes or Supplemental Food Boxes.

Emergency Food Boxes

If you are in need of food assistance, Emergency Food Boxes tailored to family size and special dietary needs, including infants, children, and homeless individuals are distributed. We serve Emergency Food Boxes to those in Chandler, Gilbert, Queen Creek, San Tan, Coolidge, Mesa, Bapchule, Sacaton, Sun Lakes and Ahwatukee. If you are not in these cities, we will serve you the first time and refer you to the Food Bank in your area.
