Agency Services Programs

St. Mary’s Food Bank Programs help to build community relationships and alleviate hunger across Arizona. We currently collaborate with food pantries, congregate meal sites, residential facilities, and other neighborhood groups to provide free, healthy meals to families in need. We supply our Agency Partners with no-cost food such as fresh vegetables, fruits, protein, canned goods, bread, and more.

SNAP Assistance

Nutrition Assistance, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program, is Arizona’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Nutrition Assistance provides eligible households with monthly benefits they can use to purchase nutritious food. St. Mary’s Food Bank is a Community Partner Assistor Organization that assists individuals with their SNAP and AHCCCS applications. We are happy to assist our Agency Partners with application assistance or mobile services. If an Agency is a current SNAP Assistor, they may track and report SNAP Assistance in Link2Feed.

If you would like to partner with us to offer application services to your neighbors and community, please get in touch with Keicha Copeland at [email protected].

Reoccurring Trainings for Agency Partners

St. Mary’s Food Bank Agency Partners are responsible for updating their agreements every fiscal year, including the SMFB Partner Organization Letter of Agreement and the Annual USDA Commodity Food Service Application and Agreement, if your agency participates in any USDA programming. In addition, all Volunteer Confidentiality, Civil Rights Training, and Food Handlers Certifications (if applicable) should be renewed each year by any two agency representatives at your organization. All distribution staff/volunteers should be trained on this content throughout the year and documented appropriately. Should these documents expire, or an agency representative is no longer involved in the distributions, it is your organization’s responsibility to renew your agreements and retrain. If you are involved in Child Nutrition programming, your representative will contact you every year with renewals.
