Deacons Food Cupboard at FPC
Mesa, AZ 85201
Details: In a land of plenty, no one should have to go hungry. The Deacons Food Cupboard at FPC is, for many, a welcome alternative to prospect of hunger. Often it is a mother seeking groceries for her family, at other times it is a homeless person just looking for a can of beans and a few crackers. The food cupboard ministry is refreshed through monthly food donations by church members and by assistance from the United Food Bank. Up to 50 bags of groceries are given away each week.
Desert Manna, Inc.
Mesa, AZ 85207
Details: Desert Manna, Inc. is a Food Pantry in East Mesa, Arizona. Each week we distribute boxes of food at no cost and with no strings attached to families in need in our community. We are equipped to serve the community living between Power Road and Meridian, and between McKellips Road and Southern Avenue. The first time you come, we ask that you bring some form of ID and some kind of proof of current residence. This can be a Driver’s License or other government-issued ID, a water or electric bill, a vehicle registration, a piece of mail addressed to you at your residence, etc. This is required because in order to do the most we can for the greatest number of families, there is a limit of one box of food per household per week. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. We give out food to as many as come, until we run out. This has not usually been a problem, but you should know that the rule is “first come, first served.” The content of the boxes varies from one week to another and is dependent upon what we receive from our donating sources. However, each week we try to see to it that the boxes contain at least: Rice, Beans, Pasta, Canned Goods, Frozen Meat, and Bread and other Bakery Items. Location: 590 N. 96th Street, Mesa AZ 85207, on the property of Calvary Free Lutheran Church.
