Food banks shutdown

Volunteers for St. Mary’s Food Bank fill bags with donated food during the shutdown. A spokesman for the food bank said they likely would expand services if there is another shutdown. 

(3TV/CBS 5) - Many Arizonans are struggling to put food on the table and turning to food banks for the first time. Our state has many smaller food pantries and soup kitchens that may be able to help. Their services range from free food boxes to meals on-site for a nominal fee. Some serve anyone who walks in while others serve very specific groups.

Please call in advance to ensure the availability of supplies and current procedures for picking up a food box. During the Covid-19 situation, hours and operations may have changed.

Here is a list of food banks in Maricopa County, listed by city.
