The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona (CFB) provides immediate food crisis relief to children, families, and the elderly across Southern Arizona. In addition to supporting clients in gaining consistent access to sufficient food, CFB also offers gardening programs, culinary job training, SNAP (food stamp) application assistance and other services that help lift persons out of poverty and onto a path of financial stability. When founded in 1976, the CFBSA began providing food for 500 meals per day. Forty years later, the CFB provides enough food for 98,500 meals per day and serves a total of 225,000 hungry, low-income men, women and children per month throughout a 23,100-square-mile area.
The primary responsibility of the VISTA is building the capacity of new and existing grocery rescue agency partners to rescue and distribute more food to their clients. The VISTA will also work to expand our grocery rescue program, with an emphasis on increasing the amount of donated fresh produce, dairy and meats. Donor development and logistics coordination are critical aspects of the position. Additionally, the VISTA will participate in statewide food sourcing activities as part of CFB’s partnership with other Arizona food banks.
