“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one” ~ Mother Teresa
Matthew's Crossing helps people find new strength. The opportunities we offer give hope to many, provide solutions to overwhelming problems, and create powerful results in our community. We provide assistance for individuals and families in need in the East Valley. Each month we feed more than 3,500 people. Most of our clients are working families. They are employed full-time or part-time, and yet still are in need of supplemental food. We also serve people between jobs, those on fixed incomes, seniors, people with disabilities, and homeless clients.
*Our mission is to alleviate hunger by providing food for families and individuals through our
community of volunteers and resources.
Many thanks to our supporting sponsors, local businesses, churches, organizations and significant donors that recently helped Matthew's Crossing raise necessary funds to continue our mission, which is to alleviate hunger by providing food, and other basic necessities, to our neighbors in need. Special thanks to former Gov. Rose Mofford and Johnny Basha for underwriting the event. Students from Knox Elementary provided our centerpieces and produced brilliant pieces of art, all centering around the theme of 'hunger'. Our new 'Have You Heard?' campaign was also launched which shares informative facts and recent events related to Matthew's Crossing; stay tuned for more 'Have You Heard?' updates!
