OOKs19% of Arizonans live below the Federal Poverty Level. Tucson has the 6th highest poverty rate for large metropolitan areas in the U.S. 1 in 4 children in Arizona is at risk for hunger. The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona (“CFB”) is a not-for-profit organization whose vision and mission is a healthy, hunger-free community achieved through education, advocacy, and the distribution of food to the hungry in Southern Arizona. 97¢ of every $1 raised by the CFB goes directly to food and programs. For every $1 donated, it can distribute about 4 meals. The CFB assists people in 23,106 square miles of Southern Arizona through its programs.  It distributes enough food for 63,400 meals a day, and over 27 million pounds of food was distributed to hungry Southern Arizonans last year. In addition to providing emergency food assistance, the CFB provides food to charities who serve people in need; provides children’s programs which include summer meals, after-school snacks, and backpacks filled with food for the weekend;  supports 50 school gardens and 1,300 urban gardens; and manages four Farmers’ Markets.
