Eligibility is based upon size of family/income, on a sliding scale; such as a family of 4 with an income below $48,470 per year are eligible for benefits. If you’re already on food stamps or enrolled in AHCCCS, you are already qualified!
By providing food for families, children and seniors, IMPACT is helping people stretch their money. Our inventory changes daily, but you will typically receive frozen meat, fresh produce, milk, eggs 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 as you enroll.
We are now operating as a Drive Thru Food Bank
If you are already enrolled in the food bank programs through Pima or Pinal County, you can pick up food at IMPACT. Just drive around to the back of the building (signs are posted to guide you) and wait patiently in line. Please stay in your vehicle. We are operating under 6 foot distancing and a no touch system; so a volunteer will come out of the double doors to ask your name and birthdate, and return inside to the computer. Another volunteer will emerge and put your groceries on a table. Once they have gone back inside, you are welcome to get out of your car and load your groceries into the vehicle.
There will be a separate line for walk-ups. Follow the posted signage.
We no longer have extra bread or food for daily access. All food is being put into the monthly distribution.
New clients can enroll quickly and easily at the lobby window. If you are not yet in the food bank system, we welcome your enrollment. The income qualification is generous, and people who are being laid off will be able to qualify.
Our MIMs program just finished providing bonus groceries to dozens of low income families referred to us by the local school counselors. These are the families that struggle the most to feed their children, and our MIMs (Mighty IMPACT Meals) program will begin again in late May.
Amphitheater and Oracle School Districts are providing free ‘grab and go’ lunch and breakfast for all children, to ensure they are eating while school is closed.
