Welcome to my work-in-progress blog.  My hope is that I can get people thinking and talking about hunger and related issues inside and outside of Arizona.  I hope to be able to post often, give an insiders view of the industry, and get people engaged enough to help out in their communities, whether that be by volunteering, disseminating information, contributing funds and other needed stuff, collaborating with their local food bank, etc.  Thanks for visiting!

  1. Hi there Food Bank Guy,
    Let me offer assistance if needed. So first question that’s on my mind, what is the Economic Stimulus going to do for food banks?

  2. As I understand it, the economic stimulus should do a couple things for food banks and those who frequent food banks. Primarily, there is increased TEFAP spending, to the tune of over $1.5 million in Arizona, meaning more USDA food for emergency food boxes. In addition, there is increased SNAP (food stamp) funding along with eligibility changes that should allow for more to qualify.
