As COVID-19 affects our community, helping our neighbors is more important than ever. The critical need for emergency food will only increase as our communities and economy are impacted by this virus.

As schools and workplaces close, the doors of the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona are staying open. But now the organization needs your help to make sure they’re always ready to respond to this changing situation.

CFB does a lot to help people with their access to food— whether that’s through meals for school kids or produce for families. Donors can help them do that. The food bank has both long and short term volunteer opportunities. Long-term volunteers can help people check in for their food box or work at a farmers market or in administration positions

The Community Food Bank mourns the loss of Punch Woods, former executive director and visionary who was dedicated and passionate in his fight to end hunger. Charles T. “Punch” Woods led the Community Food Bank for 25 years, retiring in 2003. He oversaw significant growth of the Community Food Bank and had the foresight to spearhead the move to the Food Bank’s current warehouse at 3003 S. Country Club.
