Families face unexpected expenses, such as medical bills, that cause them to have to make decisions like paying for medicine or paying for groceries. Through the emergency food system we are able to address the immediate need of being able to put food on the table, making it easier for individuals and families to focus on financial stability or other matters that can help break the cycle of poverty
We fight for families like Nicky's. Her husband passed away, leaving her a single mother of four. She found support in partner HonorHealth Desert Mission, helping her with food and other services to fit her unique situation.
See what Nicky says about her experience partnering with Valley of the Sun United Way.
We are breaking the cycle of poverty by partnering with programs to help provide groceries and meals. This is just one part of our fight. Change won't happen alone. We must unite to help even more individuals receive the food they need.
