Across the country, approximately 50 million people are uncertain of when, or how, they will acquire their next meal. Arizona is no exception, but the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona (CFBSA) aims to change that.
Their journey began in 1975 as the Food Action Coalition and has grown to include seven facilities in five counties around Arizona. Instead of placing a band-aid on the problem, they seek to address the root of hunger, providing nutrition education, workshops, culinary skills classes, funding for food entrepreneurs and leadership training. They also partner with local organizations and cultivate a conversation for awareness.
