Arizona’s four food banks get major boost as demand soars

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) – Arizona’s four regional food banks are partnering with Arizona Public Service Co. (APS) to restock the shelves this holiday season.

Overall, St. Mary’s Food Bank, United Food Bank, Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, and the Yuma Community Food Bank reported a rising demand for their services.

This includes nutritious meals.

However, with inflation, higher gas prices and supply chain issues, many nonprofits are struggling to keep up.

“Across the Yuma and La Paz communities, the demand for food is high. We’ve served more than 240,000 people this year, nearly one in five of whom are children, and we’re expecting thousands more will need help during the holidays. It takes a lot to feed so many people, but with your help, we can do it,” said Yuma Community Food Bank President and CEO Shara Whitehead.
