Apache Junction Food Bank

Working Together to Feed the Hungry


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 many volunteers. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization we are supported by our volunteers and donors. Your donations remain here in the Apache Junction and Gold Canyon areas of Maricopa and Pinal Counties. Without you we would not succeed in our mission to feed the hungry.

You make the difference!

Increased demand creates shortages

The growing numbers of hungry families in Arizona has created record demands on area food banks. Due to this increase, the St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance and the United Food Bank have returned to their original service boundaries. St. Mary's will now serve northern and western Arizona, while the United Food Bank will serve a portion of the east valley.

The adjacent map, from the St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance web site, shows the various service areas in Arizona. We are located in the green area served by the United Food Bank.

This change leaves us short 18,000 pounds of food per month. Now, more than ever, we need your support. Every $1 you donate buys 8 pounds of food and that's a good return on your investment. As you decide where to make your year-end donations, please keep us in mind - and in your hearts.
