Why Give to AAFB?

Beyond the benefit of a tax credit, your gift helps your neighbors and fellow Arizonans struggling with hunger. 

For almost 30 years, AAFB has helped deliver food to food banks, connected those in need with assistance, and advocated for more effective and accessible nutrition programs. At the present time, the need for food is immediate, massive, increasing, and predicted to remain high. Almost 1 million Arizonans live in poverty, one in four of our children struggle with hunger, and record numbers receive SNAP (Food Stamps).

Your gift to AAFB is vital to combating the unacceptable problem of hunger.
