What we aim to solve New!

One of every six people in Arizona struggle with hunger. This number is worse for children at one of every four. AAFB fights hunger in the start in partnership with regional food banks and the network of soup kitchens and food pantries they support.

Our goal is our vision: a hunger-free AZ.

AAFB works with member food banks to increase the quality and quantity of food distributed through the statewide hunger relief network, with an emphasis on produce. Advocacy on behalf of those at risk of hunger helps put and keep in place protections for the most vulnerable citizens in the state. Additionally, AAFB works to get more children at risk of hunger free and reduced priced meals in school and during the summer by working with schools, districts and other organizations.

Since 1983 AAFB has been working with food banks to leverage economies of scale and to add a voice at the legislature that speaks for the most vulnerable of our citizens. AAFB staff have decades of experience in nonprofit management, logistics and advocacy and subject matter expertise on issues that make a different for food insecure Arizonans. AAFB has worked to ensure organization stability, both in low staff turnover and financial management.

Food insecurity is measured each year and reported both in government information and by Feeding America's "Map the Meal Gap" study.

In the last two years, food insecurity has declined in Arizona. These changes, although incremental, are at the same time encouraging and disheartening, as one of every four Arizona children remain food insecure.
