In collaboration with several partners in the local area, the Community Food Bank provides healthy, after-school snacks five days per week to specific sites through the USDA At Risk After School Child and Adult Care Food Program.
During the school year, this program utilizes unique relationships with community partners and participating schools to provide children who have been identified as needing additional food assistance over the weekend with a pack of nutritious, child-friendly food.
Featuring a feeding program at congregate meal sites, a 10-week culinary training program for unemployed and underemployed individuals, and a full catering service, Caridad is built on the principle that hunger in our community can be solved in many ways.
Farm to Child works with low-income, public schools in Tucson to create garden programs that act as educational tools for teachers. Within these programs students learn about food and nutrition as well as integrated subjects like biology, math, art, and language.
