St. Vincent de Paul has modified some services to maintain the health and safety of guests, staff and volunteers during the coronavirus outbreak. Please refer to updated service details below. (Updated 11/16/20)
Q1. How do I get help with food boxes, furniture or clothing?
We provide food boxes and thrift store gift cards through our community food pantries, which are based out of Catholic churches. Each one responds to needs within its neighborhood. Use this map to find the food pantry that serves your neighborhood. Since all of the pantries are run by volunteers, each location has unique operating hours. Simply type in your address in the search bar and the Google Map will show you the pantry service boundaries, hours and phone number. If we do not have a food pantry in your neighborhood, please call 602.850.6777 for assistance. Due to federal and state guidelines in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, current volunteer resources are limited.
For additional resources, visit the Arizona Food Bank Network website for a list of food banks in your area. Many school districts are opening facilities for breakfast and lunch. Please visit your specific school district's websites for more information.
Q2. How do I get help with rent and utility bills?
