If you are already on food stamps or enrolled in AHCCCS, you already qualified!


By providing food for families, children and seniors, IMPACT is helping people stretch their budgets as well as ensure they have healthy food options and food to prepare at home. Our inventory changes daily, but you will typically receive frozen meat, fresh produce, dairy and other items. We also have other wonderful services, which include school supplies & backpacks, and so much more!

What you need to enroll
A government issued I.D. and an official piece of mail, like a utility bill with your name and address on it. NO physical proof of of income is required. You will be able to receive food the same day you enroll, if you are on our campus during Food Bank operating hours. If you come later, and we still have food, we will be sure you go home with at least some food to tie you over until the next day.

At our IMPACT Food Bank, people self shop for 

non-perishable foods, toiletries and more.

If you are already enrolled in the food bank program in Pima or Pinal County, you are already enrolled in our system; so you can go directly to our white Food Bank building at 3535 E Hawser St in Catalina (85739) and pick up food during our operating hours, as long a you have not yet visited another food bank in the same month.

If you are not yet in the food bank system, we welcome your enrollment. New clients can enroll quickly and easily at the front desk in our lobby. Staff is available and ready to help. The income qualification is generous, and people who are being laid off will be able to qualify.

Our Food Bank program is available to people in seven different Southern AZ Counties, and in fact, if you belong to a food bank anywhere in AZ, and are traveling through, you are also welcome to stop in for service.

Beside food service, we also have other programs for residents in our local area, to help stretch your budget so you can spend more of your own income on other needs. Find out if you also qualify, by address, for this added IMPACT assistance.
