Support Your Local Chandler Food Banks

During the holiday season, local food banks are in desperate need of many holiday food items for their food box distributions. Join For Our City - Chandler in supporting these local food banks that distribute holiday food boxes to families in need.

Know a Family in Need?

 The local food banks listed above are all accepting registration for families who would like to receive a holiday food box. One family per address will receive the necessary ingredients to prepare their own Thanksgiving Dinner.  Families must be registered to receive a food box. 

At AZCEND, starting October 1st through November 1st, the Food Bank will be giving out coupons for Holiday Food Boxes. Everyone that comes to AZCEND for an Emergency Food Box (Monday – Thursday) can sign up for a Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday Food Box and will receive a Holiday Food Box coupon. Food Box distribution for registered families will occur on Sat, Nov 17th from 8 - 11 am. Please bring your coupon, proof of address in Chandler, and a valid picture ID to receive your Food Box.
