About the organization

The mission of the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona is to change lives in the communities we serve by feeding the hungry today, and building a healthy, hunger-free tomorrow.

The CFB responds to the root causes of hunger, and seeks to restore dignity, health, opportunity and hope to people living in poverty.

The CFB was founded in 1975. The organization is governed by a Board of Directors from a diverse range of backgrounds and experience who bring important perspectives to the guidance of our work. The annual budget is $22 million excluding in-kind food and $115 million including in-kind food. The staff of 168 employees includes the following who report directly to the CEO and constitute the leadership team: Chief Finance & Administration Officer (CFAO), Chief Development Officer (CDO), Chief Programs and Operations Officer (CPO), and Chief Impact Officer (CIO).

The CFB programs include emergency food assistance, free meals, a farmers’ market, community gardens, nutrition education, culinary training, support for local growers and food systems, advocacy, and more. The CFB serves five counties in Southern Arizona: Cochise, Graham, Pima, Greenlee, and Santa Cruz in partnership with 385 agency partners. The CFB seeks to distribute 40-50 million pounds of food annually. The CFB emphasizes client choice in food selections including: diabetic food boxes, fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, and an ever-growing variety of nutritious food.

CFB’s service area is situated on the lands of multiple indigenous sovereign nations. Systemic legacies of inequity and disenfranchisement show up in the work of CFB. The majority of people seeking emergency food assistance are people of color or other marginalized people. CFB’s programming prioritizes greater community participation in solutions. Arizona’s food insecurity rate is around 12% and has been for the last 50 years. CFB looks to reduce that rate.

Because ending hunger and supporting healthy, thriving communities takes more than distributing food, the CFB engages in advocacy and public policy work , including: providing training, encouraging community leaders, and building collective power to influence policies that will advance the CFB’s mission in the community.
The CFB is beginning a 5-year strategic plan focusing on allocating its resources to communities facing higher marginalization and food insecurity, reducing food insecurity rates, increasing community development initiatives, and establishing meaningful indicators of mission success.

The CFB is a proud member of Feeding America, a nationwide network of food banks and hunger relief organizations. A national leader in the food security and food justice movements, in 2018 CFB was named Food Bank of the Year by Feeding America.
