New Horizon Community Care started receiving food donations from United Food Bank in 2018. United Food Bank has deep roots in the valley and has provided hunger relief to people all around Arizona since 1983. They have partnered with over 220 agencies that serve more than 228,000 people in need, even in some of the most remote areas of the state. In 2018, United Food Bank distributed almost 24 million pounds of food providing nearly 19.5 million meals.
These donations have been such a relief as we’ve grown as an agency, helping us provide the clients in our care with varied, wholesome meals. We love seeing the excitement on our clients faces as they get their weekly food boxes – especially when they discover something they’ve never tried before! Having these donations supplementing our regular grocery shopping helps to ensure our over 400 clients and their families never go hungry.
We are so grateful to be part of United Food Bank’s mission to feed those who need it the most in our communities. Thank you for everything you do!
