Delivers supplemental, nutritious food to homebound clients

Because some of our clients have health, age or mobility issues which keep them homebound, we are proud to offer our Homebound Delivery Program, a partnership between Sedona Community Food Bank (SCFB) and Verde Valley Caregivers Coalition. Food is delivered once a month to 25 to 30 homebound clients in Sedona and Village of Oak Creek. The food provided includes crucial non-perishable foods as well as fresh baked goods and produce. Clients are able to fill out a form indicating food preferences and dietary needs.

SCFB volunteers pack the bags volunteers from Verde Valley Caregivers Coalition deliver the bags. Clients benefit not only from receiving supplemental food, they also benefit from seeing a friendly volunteer who delivers their food. A caring visitor can make a big difference in the day of someone who is homebound.

THE KIDS WEEKEND FOOD PACK PROGRAM

With 1 out of 3 children hungry in Yavapai County, many of our kids rely upon The Kids Weekend Food Pack Program. The program is the only way many children receive adequate nutrition over the weekends. Food packs are available to qualifying students at partnering schools and child care programs throughout Yavapai County.

Food backpack programThe Kids Weekend Food Pack program is a joint project of the Yavapai Food Council, emergency food providers, Sedona Community Food Bank (SCFB), and inter-faith organizations. The backpacks provide a variety of healthy, shelf-stable, individually packaged food items to keep children nourished over the weekend when school meals aren’t available.

In 2015 alone, 28,559 meals were provided to hungry kids through the weekend backpack program! During that year, SCFB filled 54 food packs weekly, which were delivered to a local elementary school. Monthly, those food packs totaled just over 1400 pounds of food!

How can you help?

Easy! By donating foods for the food packs! Each pack contains 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, and 2 dinner sides, so remember, we need multiples of of everything. Foods need to be lunch-sized or individual-serving sized.

BIRTHDAY WISHES

A birthday celebration can be a food drive! The next time you have a birthday to celebrate, ask for food donations for SCFB instead of gifts! This is a great idea for kids’ birthdays as well as for adults.

NEIGHBORHOODS

Organize a food drive in your neighborhood on a regular basis – maybe when you have your homeowners association meetings or parties. Or neighbors can leave their food donations in bags at your home or, in the case of some neighborhoods, the clubhouse. If you need someone to pick up the donations, give us a call.

WORSHIP GROUPS, CLUBS, ORGANIZATIONS

When you have meetings, special events, or other special occasions, ask members to bring food donations for SCFB. People are happy to donate when asked!

Please contact Cathleen or Dennis or phone them at (928) 204-2808, if you or your organization would like to organize a food drive; we can provide you with information and blue barrels and, if you need the accumulated food picked up, we can arrange for pickup.
