Hunger Relief

ALLEVIATING FOOD INSECURITY FOR SENIORS, ADULTS, & FAMILIES

In Tempe, one in four children lives in poverty and is at risk of going to bed hungry tonight. In a single mother-led household, this number is an alarming one in two children. TCAA's Hunger Relief programming connects people in need with a regular source for healthy food.  Our comprehensive hunger relief programs were designed with the following goals in mind:

  • Improving access to nutritious food to individuals and families in need
  • Improving the nutritional content of food boxes with the addition of fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables
  • Improving awareness about available programs and resources to prevent hunger
  • Educating individuals and families about healthy and affordable food choices that will stretch their budget and improve nutritional intake

Our Hunger Relief menu of services includes the Food Pantry, SNAP education and enrollment, and senior meal programs. Click below for additional details.


How You Can Help

Food insecurity is an issue that extends far beyond TCAA’s capacity to address it alone. A community-wide response is critical! Local businesses and community members have several options make a difference in support of hunger relief programs benefiting seniors, adults, and children in need.
