The Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center is in need of volunteer drivers to pick-up and drop off food and related items for the food bank.

Because requests for food assistance have intensified, van drivers are needed to help ensure the families that are served by Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center receive the food and personal items they so desperately need.

Foothills Food Bank seeks individuals with an SUV or small truck who can work one to two days a week for two hours to pick up and transport donated food, according to a press release. Food pick-ups, which range in size and weight, typically are conducted during early morning hours between 7-10 a.m.

“The need is critical as we cannot feed those in need without volunteers,” stated Executive Director Pam DiPietro in the release.

Interested and available volunteers can contact John Murphy at 480-600-6978 or by e-mail at

The Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center provides emergency food, financial assistance and other life necessities and resources to individuals and families in the desert foothills, which encompasses a 180-square mile area that includes Black Canyon City, Cave Creek, Carefree, Anthem, Desert Hills, New River, north Scottsdale and north Phoenix.
