St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance, the world's first food bank, is a non-sectarian, nonprofit organization that alleviates hunger by efficiently gathering and distributing food to sites that serve the hungry. Serving two-thirds of Arizona's 15 counties, the organization is committed to volunteerism, building community relationships and improving the quality of life for Arizonans in need.
Want to help even more? HSGP is aiming to be named a Hunger Hero, which means we have volunteered at St. Mary's three times this year, donated $1,000, and donated 1,000 lbs of food. If you'd like to help us reach this goal, consider bringing some healthy food to donate (bottled water, peanut butter, canned or dry beans, or other healthy foods are always needed). We are currently at about 200 lbs donated. Each Volunteer, youth and adult, will need to complete a release form. Release forms can be found under the "More" tab at the top of the page, in the section labeled "files". If you have volunteered with us at St. Mary's before, you do not need to fill out the form again.
