Apache Junction Food Bank
those in need
For over 30 years the Apache Junction Food Bank has served hundreds of people each week. Our staff consists of two employees and hundreds of volunteers. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization we are supported by volunteers and donors. Without you we would not succeed in our mission to feed the hungry.
You make the difference!
Our food bank provides a 3 to 5 day emergency supply of food for individuals and families in need. Need help? Click on the links below for more information.
The Apache Junction Food Bank has been an advocate for feeding the hungry since 1982. As a volunteer organization, we have depended on the generosity of volunteers who give their time, talents, and resources toward reaching this goal.
As the Thanksgiving holiday nears, we are very aware of those in need. To help us gather the food needed to provide a Thanksgiving Dinner to the needy, you can click on our donation links; register to volunteer on the day we distribute the food; and you can donate food. Six to ten volunteers will be needed November 15th at 12 Noon to put together 200+ Holiday Food Bags.
If you would like to host a food drive, you will find the information here.
