CCFB is an outstanding orginization that helps serve so many need people within the Greater Phoenix Area. They work day in and out to ensure proper nutrition and healthcare is provided to those most in need. I would highly recommend this orginization to be commended on their service for the people of Phoenix.

The executive director Sabiha is awesome. I have seen her and her staff go out of their way to help someone in need This is not a unique story. This happened on a daily basis while I was volunteering there. In addition, I was a recipient of the food boxes. Even when their funds were low, they stretched their dollar to make it happen and still managed to help the needy in the community! I applaud the Cultural Cup Food Bank and I am now in the position to give back to my community and help the food bank like they helped me when I needed the leg up. I have been donating faithfully since November and I have seen my dollar put to good use by the new programs which they have implemented and the new medical building which they recently acquired. A few years ago one of the doctors saw me for free and even gave me a gift card to get my medication at the pharmacy! Thank you to all the selfless and hardworking staff at Cultural Cup who truly care about the disabled and poor people in the community and who care about our lives! The Muslim community should be proud that they have such an amazing resource in their community!

I went to Cultural Cup Food Bank on a Saturday morning to volunteer. The lady at the desk was very helpful and directed me to the doctor who was taking patients that morning (he runs the clinic). I asked if there was anything she needed. "Doctors," she said. That day I made a resolve to become one.

Started by someone who once needed assistance herself, this organization not only provides food and clothing donation, but also medical and dental services. Further, they are the only pantry that is sensitive to dietary needs such as kosher and halal. I love that! So proud of this org, hope to see it continue to blossom and grow.

I have had many clients tell me that they like the way they are treated at the Cultural Cup Food Bank. I have heard more positive things over the years from people who have had hard times. They prefer to go to this food bank over any other. Great Job! P Lee

The cultural cup is an amazing organization. The people are always kind and they are never judgmental. You can get food assistance even if you have a dietary restricted diet and they will cater to your needs.

I have used the cultural cup for food and socks and cloths.
I also went when they had volunteer doctors and I had no insurance and needed an inhaler.
They are very helpful and nice.

The Culture Cup Food Bank is a great organization that not only provides meals for the needy but also a medical clinic to assist the community at large. Over the years I have personally observed this organization grow and hope that the future continues to be as bright as the people who work and serve the community via the CCFB!

The Cultural Cup Food Bank is one of the most outstanding charities in Phoenix. Their devotion to community service and will to continue going despite the odds have helped them to succeed where other ventures have failed. They have offered medical care, clothing and food to their participants and provide volunteering opportunities for students and community members.

I worked as a volunteer in the free medical clinic of the Cultural Cup Food Bank. This organization is really making a difference by serving those who cannot afford medical care in the Phoenix area. I did administrative work and assisted doctors in caring for patients. The doctors work for free and provide excellent service. The clinic is very efficiently organized. I really enjoyed my experience as a volunteer. This organization is doing great things.

The Cultural Cup food bank is a wonderful resource in central Phoenix. I have been fortunate enough to have volunteered for and donated to this organization for over 8 years. The volunteers are amazing and truly care about people, and go above and beyond to serve those in need. I used to bring my Girl Scout troop to volunteer on Saturday mornings at their Farmers Markets - what an amazing experience for the girls. CCFB is small with a big impact on the community. They provide a free medical clinic, food, clothing, and are one of very few resources for Muslims to be able to receive halal food which doesn't compromise religious values. I strongly encourage others to help CCFB, as they are positively impacting people every day!

The Cultural Cup Food Bank is an amazing non-profit organization that's been helping the community with food, clothing, etc... for over 10 years. CCFB not only helps people who are homeless, disabled, special needs they also help people who have jobs but are still struggling on a day to day basis. CCFB also helps anyone who cannot afford to go to a medical professional by offering their free clinic to anyone who needs assistance. Not only does the Cultural Cup Food Bank offer assistance to those in need but they also offer the most important thing that a person who is in need and that is being treated as a human being, CCFB has amazing volunteers whom are very courteous, non-judgmental, happy, and amazing friendly
