Children's Literacy

Food Box Program

Many in Flagstaff have a tough time making ends meet. That’s why our food box program is so important in helping families stretch their monthly food budgets. Flagstaff residents can receive food boxes twice per month as supplies allow.

Food Rescue program

Daily

We rescue approximately 1,642,000 pounds of food from local restaurants and grocery stores annually. This program accounts for 40% of our total food intake and keeps this food out of Flagstaff’s landfill. 

Food for Farms

Daily

Produce that is no longer edible by humans is provided to local farms, ranches, and attractions like Bearizona to be included in animal feed. Nothing goes to waste!

In the Community

Home-Bound Senior Deliveries

Monthly

Every month, we deliver food boxes with pantry staples, bread, and fresh produce to home-bound seniors in our community.  

Mobile pantries

Daily

Some people can’t make it to our food bank during distribution hours, so we bring fresh produce and other food staples to them! We currently have three mobile pantries that bring nutritious food to elementary schools and senior centers.

Non-Profit Agency Support

Weekdays — from 1 to 3 p.m.

Over 35 non-profit organizations, such as Hope Cottage, Northland Family Help Center, Sunshine Rescue Mission, and the Salvation Army, access food for their clients through our food bank. In fact, we distribute more than 1.1 million pounds of food to local non-profits annually.
