On September 1, 2005, St. Mary's Food Bank merged with the Westside Food Bank creating the St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance. St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance serves 13 of Arizona's 15 counties. The Food Bank is committed to providing food to Arizonans in need through more than 900 partner agencies throughout the state. These agencies serve a wide range of clients, the majority of those being families with children and seniors. The two food banks combined as St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance will distribute approximately 60 million pounds of food to families and individuals in need in one year, provide enough food for 200,000 meals every day, and garner more than 200,000 volunteer service hours.
