Arizona free food banks.
Arizona individuals and families can receive free food, meals, groceries, and other items such as clothing. The assistance is offered from numerous food banks and free pantries near you that are located across the state. Staff at the sites can also help clients sign up for public benefits or refer them to pantries that are more convenient to their home. Get information on the various programs and distribution centers that help those in need.
Many of the non-profit food banks and distribution centers in the state work closely with other charities, government human service offices, and local churches. Many locations may also be part of national non-profit charity type organizations (including Feeding America) that provide low cost or free food to the low income, disabled, unemployed, elderly, and others across the nation. There is also a telephone number at the bottom of this page for referrals to other pantries that may be near where you live in Arizona.
Call the center in your part of Arizona, or the location that is closest to you. They may be able to provide you food and groceries, or if not, they can definitely direct you to organizations that are in your town or city.
As indicated, referrals and other support may be disbursed from each site. They may have information on local soup kitchens, food stamps applications, and similar resources. So in addition to the food banks and pantries listed below, also ask a staff member for additional assistance.
