We are open to anyone who needs help.
While we are focused on assisting the needy and vulnerable in the Jewish community, we do not turn away anybody, regardless of religion or affiliation. 

Arizona Kosher Pantry is a project of Ezras Cholim of Arizona.

How To Get Involved and Become a Volunteer

Please contact us by phone or email. You can help us find food and supplies for the needy. Often grocery stores are not aware that they can donate many kinds of food to pantries so that the food gets distributed rapidly to needy individuals and families without it going to waste. Food spoils quickly. A retail grocery store may just discard usable food because they have not made arrangements to get the useable food to hungry, needy people. Contact your favorite grocery store and tell them about our pantry. When you see items being pulled from the shelves, please let them know about needy families and how they can help. Everyone knows about needy people going hungry and having to beg for food or look through refuse containers. We all have seen underfed children and starving elderly.

Even non-food retail vendors may have food related items that they can donate when the pull dates come. For example, candy and beverages are often stocked at home centers, such as at Home Depot, and at auto supply stores such as Autozone and O’Reilly. Office supply stores, such as Office Depot also carry snacks that can be donated. The list of retail stores and restaurants is very large. Let them know that they can help the hungry, too.

You can even volunteer from your own home by phone to raise awareness and save food from being wasted. If you can do fundraising, there are people who want to make donations but do not know whom to contact or where their extra money is needed the most. You can put them in touch with our pantry. We want to help any person in need and to stop hunger in Arizona.

If you feel that you would like to help with food delivery, we might be able to let you help with this as well.

If you would like to help sort or package food, please tell us.

Ask your friends and neighbors who they know that needs food.

You can always help the needy directly if you are able to.

However, if a grocery will only distribute their excess food to another business organization, tell them about our pantry. We would be grateful for their excess food and can get it to the hungry.

We will also accept pet food for pet owners who are having a difficult time feeding their cat or dog.

Call us if you have questions about what can be donated. It is possible that we can accept and direct certain supplies to another pantry even if we do not need it.
