New Programs!

Despite our growing numbers of people served at our Kitchen and Food Bank, we know there are still thousands of vulnerable individuals, families, children, and seniors who are unable to reach us due to lack of transportation, physical or mental disability, or long-term debilitating illness. To reach more people in need, we recently added two new hunger relief programs: Home-bound Senior Deliveries and Mobile Pantries.

Home-Bound Senior Deliveries

Our Home-bound Meal Delivery Program began in April 2018 when the Department of Economic Security pulled out of Flagstaff, stopping the Commodity Senior Food Program (CSFP) that provides boxes of nonperishable food items to very low-income individuals over 60 years of age. The FFFC stepped in to fill this gap and began delivering CSFP boxes, as well as our own food boxes consisting of fresh produce, meat, eggs, and milk, to eligible home-bound seniors.  

Mobile Pantries

Our Mobile Pantry Program currently distributes food at three locations: Killip Elementary and two senior centers (one in Flagstaff and one on the Leupp reservation). At each distribution, we give out over 10,000 pounds of food (mostly produce) to children, families, and seniors in need.

What We Do

Daily Hot Meals

Enjoy a hot, nutritious meal in a family-friendly environment. Our Hot Meal is open to the public and does not require identification or proof or local residency – if you are hungry, you are welcome!

Food Box Program

Individuals and families in need can receive food boxes twice per month as supplies allow. We know that stretching your monthly food budget is important, so we’re happy to offer twice monthly food boxes.

Reading Room

After our daily hot meals, children are supported in their reading and homework by volunteers—many of whom are retired educators. Additionally, children get to take home books to keep and treasure.

 

Make a Difference

Support our hunger relief programs and help Flagstaff Family Food Center provide 3 million meals to men, women and children experiencing food insecurity and hunger right here in the Flagstaff community.
