Foothills Food Bank in Need of Food, Monetary Donations

Foothills Food Bank & Resource Center has too many empty shelves and is in need of non-perishable food donations and foods for the upcoming holidays.

Pam DiPietro, executive director for Foothills Food Bank, says that even more families and working individuals are in need of food due to changing economic forces and work transitions.

“Factors such as job change issues, the cost of living and other life changes have resulted in an increase in the nutritional needs of many in our communities,” says DiPietro. “We ask the public to provide us with food donations to increase our food inventory through spring.”

“The food bank also encourages area businesses, churches and individuals to host food drives and/or drop off food and toiletries to help the food bank,” adds DiPietro.

Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center provides emergency food, financial assistance and other life necessities and resources to individuals and families in the desert foothills, which encompasses a 180-square mile area that includes Anthem, Black Canyon City, Carefree, Cave Creek, Desert Hills, New River, North Phoenix and North Scottsdale.
