How to Help
Volunteers bring their hearts and their hands to their work at Matthew's Crossing Food Bank. Their efforts are vital to our mission of feeding the hungry in our state. Visit our volunteer page for more information on volunteer opportunities. If you are interested in learning more or scheduling volunteer opportunities, please reach out to our food bank manager, Jennifer Ponzo at 480-857-2296.
At the Matthew's Crossing Food Bank, we want to provide an opportunity for everyone to be able to make a difference. If you don’t have time to donate to helping us with our projects or aren’t close enough to help us on site, see below some other ideas of ways to take action and help fight hunger:
Food donations are welcome during the food bank's open hours. If you have a large donation and will need help, please call before you come so we can have the staff needed on hand. Please check all expiration dates and food packages must not be open.
Organize a Food Drive
Raising awareness is a big part of fighting hunger, so help us get the word out there by lending your voice! Visit our statistics page to learn about poverty and hunger in Arizona so you can tell people about the issues facing our fellow Arizona residents.
We all shop and there are some great ways to fight hunger at the same time. Click here to find out all the ways you can make a difference.
Matthew's Crossing can purchase food for a much lower price than you can at the grocery stores through our partner agency United Food Bank. Please consider a financial gift and then use the donation as a tax deduction. See more here.
Employee Matching Gifts
Stretch your gift even further by asking your employer about their matching giving policies. Please provide Matthew's Crossing with your employer’s matching gift form so that you can maximize your gift.
