1 in 8 people in Arizona struggle with hunger
That’s why Arizona's Family is teaming up with Albertsons and Safeway to raise $1 million this year to End Hunger Now.
Children, families, and seniors need our help during the pandemic
Many Arizonans are struggling to put food on the table and turning to food banks for the first time. Food banks report seeing a record increase in the number of people needing help, with an average increase of 50% across the country. Between March and June, roughly 4 in 10 people visiting food banks had not received food assistance before the pandemic.
Unfortunately, the need for nutritious, healthy food is great. Charitable programs are unable to fully support those struggling with hunger.
Help is needed to bridge the meal gap.
End hunger now. Take action.
All month long, visit any Safeway or Albertsons store and make a food or monetary donation. Your generosity will support the nine valley agencies benefiting from Arizona’s Family End Hunger Now donation drive.
These donations will help provide meals to the 937,300 people in our state.
Help Arizona’s Family end hunger—because one hungry mouth is too many.
