Military Food Banks
STS collects and delivers hundreds of boxes of food worth tens of thousands of dollars to three separate food banks located on military installations in the Tucson area. Much of this food is donated by volunteers, local retail grocers and neighbors supplemented by items purchased directly by STS volunteers.
Food Assistance Card
Originally to help service members at holidays, food card assistance has become an invaluable year-round resource. In 2014 we provided $5000 in food cards. Last year we supplied $12,000 in food cards and this year we will supply $16,000. A generous $15,000 grant from the Safeway foundation helped give this program a top priority.
