Vista del Camino Food Bank

Helping thousands of hungry individuals and families each year.

Food Bank to provide food boxes and homeless food bags filled with essential foods to thousands of hungry individuals and families each year. Scottsdale residents meet with City social workers to determine if the food shortage is short-term or longer term.  Historically, residents were eligible to receive four food boxes per year through the Vista del Camino Food Bank to address critical needs.  In our FY 2015/2016, 2,032 food boxes were distributed, each of which may feed a family for 2-4 days.  In 2016, we increased assistance from four to six food boxes per year, to extend the support provided during crisis.  However, if the need is greater, residents work with the social workers to identify long-term food assistance sources with government agencies such as the Department of Economic Security for food stamp assistance, Food Plus, and Women, Infant, and Children (WIC) Food and Nutrition Services.

In addition to food, the Vista del Camino Food Bank offers toiletries and specialty items for infants, small children and elderly residents living in Scottsdale.

How you can help

We are always in need of food, toiletry, and specialty hygiene items to support the Food Bank.  However, financial donations are specifically requested, as we are able to purchase needed items in bulk, which allows greater buying power over smaller purchases. You can make a monetary donation, or drop off any items from our wish list directly to the Vista del Camino Food Bank at 77000 E. Roosevelt St., Scottsdale, AZ 85257.

Food bank boxes were delivered to Scottsdale families in 2016
