Program areas at Community Food Bank of So AZ

Health and Food Programs: Our Health & Food initiatives are broad efforts to increase access to healthy and culturally-relevant foods in order to prevent negative health outcomes and to strengthen regional food systems. Food distributions in southern Arizona was through our mobile distribution sites and our locations in Tucson, Amado, Green Valley, Marana, Willcox, and Nogales, and through our network of 200+ partner agencies. 344,668 senior meals and 102,590 community meals were distributed through our Caridad Community Kitchen and 200,495 unique individuals were served through our two major USDA programs: The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) and the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP).Health disparities can largely be attributed to unequal access to healthy foods, in which socio- economic factors such as race, gender, income, and location of residence play a role. For food insecure populations, lack of access to healthy food often results in a wide variety of negative health outcomes like increased incidence and prevalence of diabetes, poor management of certain behavioral conditions, and social isolation.Our health and food efforts work across our service area to provide nutritious, culturally relevant foods to those who are experiencing hunger and adverse health outcomes. Our community health care partnerships help advance regional policy and has the potential to inform national policy.
Community Development Programs: We believe hunger and poverty are outcomes of broader systems and local policies that create a sense of powerlessness, resource inequity, and issues of under or over representation. Our community development work focuses on groups, organizations, and governments to create opportunities for change in these systems. We use initiatives that increase the capacity, engagement, and self-determination of community members and organizations to determine, enact, and sustain solutions to systemic problems and local issues. In the past fiscal year, we gave over $337,000 in monetary grants to partner organization to maintain or increase services, quality, or community engagement for a healthy, hunger-free community. We recognized $28,000 in SNAP and SNAP-match sales at farmer's markets and assisted 150 local producers to engage in economic opportunities. 35% of total direct-to-consumer sales at market were in Public Assistance benefits. We saw $316,500 generated through local food sales, which equated to $589,000 generated in the local economy. Within our community development efforts, we engage in three key tasks: empowerment, capacity building, and resilience. Through funding, technical assistance, and leadership development, we help to build resilient groups that are better able to weather storms and maintain healthy communities as new leaders develop and new needs arise.
Educational Programs: We believe resources and opportunities are inequitably distributed between communities, and that education can help build a bridge out of poverty toward improved socio-economic conditions. Our education initiatives promote learning and social connection through the facilitation of skill building, engagement, career readiness, and leadership development. In the past fiscal year, we gave over $268,000 in monetary capacity-building grants to partner organizations. 16 culinary students were trained in our culinary kitchen, totaling 3,130 hours. Our Farm to Child program has educated 430 students and 30 teachers to create and tend to on campus school gardens, and has trained over 20,500 hours in the area of garden and nutrition. Nuestra Tierra Garden hosted trainings for 372 community members for a total of 3300 training hours in food production education, soil fertility and community garden management trainings. Las Milpitas Community Farm has delivered 17,740 training hours of farm production training in greenhouse maintenance, food production and cultivation, food justice issues and community farm management to 2,150 program participants and community members. All 73+ plots are full supporting families and small producers.
