Who We Are
Caring Coalition AZ was started as a community effort to provide food and support to neighboring families in need, specifically school-aged children who are going without adequate food on weekends. In Arizona, one million children depend on free or reduced cost school lunches for their nourishment, but are left without this assistance on the weekends. Caring Coalition AZ steps in to offer care packages composed of snacks children can easily open and eat while home on the weekends.
Our mission is to support the health of local Phoenix families, therefore this support is extended to family members of all ages. We serve whomever needs to be served–utilizing local schools to connect with and identify those in need. In addition to weekend food care packages, we hold food drives for individual families who need extra supplies over a long school break or holiday.
We are powered by a local group of loyal volunteers that help purchase and package food for care packages, help setup and run fundraisers and collect and transport donated goods. If you would like to become a volunteer, visit our “Get Involved” page.
We aim to provide our children and families with healthful and appealing food choices. Please kindly ask that donations meet these requirements:
• 100% fruit and fruit juice
• Whole grains
• Free of as many preservatives as possible
• Free of high fructose corn syrup
• Free of MSG
Our nonprofit is funded solely on monetary and food donations from neighbors like you and we thank you for your support and kindness!
