United Food Bank is an amazing group of people--it does so much with so little! 98% of money coming in goes towards services and programs--getting food out to UFB's member agencies and providing food-filled backpacks for schoolkids on Fridays, and many other programs. UFB is able to do all this work because they have very dedicated staff, and many volunteers. If you donate $1.00, you will be providing 4.5 meals for hungry people in their service area--because UFB can leverage the money you give and make it go so much further! It amazed me when I found out that 1 in 4 kids in Arizona is food insecure--not knowing where their next meal will come from. (the situation is almost as bad for Seniors). UFB especially needs money and food donations when the holidays are over--many people give to food banks around Thanksgiving or Christmas. The need is great all year round....any donation will go very far!

Glenn Beck made me increase my donations. I have donated for years and fully support the United Food Bank and the excellent and responsible way it serves others. Glenn Beck is constantly encouraging his viewers to take responsibility and take care of others. As a result of his constant encouragement to do more I have tripled the amount I give to this food bank and plan to do the same with other well run charities that help neighbors take care of neighbors.

We have made donations to the United Food Bank for several years. It is a service that we support as it is local, helping people in our own area. We have always received a prompt response with a hand written note stating that our donation will help many people; we know that our donation is needed and appreciated.

A very good way to put even a few dollars towards feeding those in our neighborhoods that are hungry. A little goes a very long way.

I got a new PO box and received a letter from the United Food Bank meant for the previous owner. The letters continued to come after returning several to the post office desk. God put it in my heart to open one of them. The letter expressed the concern why the original owner of the PO Box had stopped donating. I took it upon myself to continue with the donations because I have been homeless and hungry. Several organizations fed me during that time. I feel like it was God's will and I will continue to donate in the name of Jesus, because it is his works.

Our subdivision is a former working citrus grove in SE Phoenix. United Food Bank has partnered with my neighborhood for 5 years now by providing us with volunteers to pick our excess fruit, boxes and pallets to collect this fruit and then picking it all up to take back to their facility. They in turn give this fruit to people who need and want it. It is a win-win for all of us. We are so grateful to UFB for all of the time and energy they put into transfering this wealth of healthy citrus to others when we cannot. Mrs. Yazzie is tireless in her efforts to provide a service to US...and then to others. We would be lost without UFB and their dedication to using the excess fruit of the southeast valley to feed those in need.

I have sent many of my co-workers and others that needed affordable and nutritious food. One of many programs that this organization offers is the purchase of a low cost box of food. This helps families that have had to cut back dramatically on their food budget in order to pay other bills. This helps the family that lost their only source of income due to layoffs. This food box often is the only food a family is able to purchase for their household. United Food Bank is an asset to the the 5 counties it serves with its variety of programs.

This is an organization that is making a huge positive difference in Arizona. UFB supplies many nonprofit organizations that feed thousands of hungry families in Arizona. The organization is well run and every effort is made in sharing as much money from donations to the people that need it. If you are looking for worthy cause, that is making a huge difference on many families in Arizona, please contact them.

United Food Bank (UFB) is an efficient, client-friendly, forward-looking organization that provides food for local agenies to distribute to their clients. UFB has adopted several innovative procedures such as conducting a nutrient analysis of their food in order to offer high nutrient foods; they reorganized their food pick-up and delivery schedules to lower gasoline expenses and staff time; and they have expanded their network of grocer donors. UFB managers and staff are always open to new ideas. If you, your family, or your "group" are ever looking for a valuable community project, United Food Bank is an ideal agency to partner with!
