About Harvest Compassion Center
For more than 4 years, the Harvest Compassion Center has been serving guests in the Phoenix area. Operated with a staff of volunteers, the food and clothing bank meets the needs of individuals and their families who may be going through a hardship.
The HCC strives to be more than just a local food bank. It is set up like a store, where guests are able to shop and choose their desired food, hygiene products, baby items and clothing FREE of charge. We are open to the general public and provide service to anyone living in Arizona on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
In Arizona, 1 in 4 children and 1 in 5 adults are hungry. Arizona ranks 13th worst in the country in food hardship rate with 19.2% of Arizonians not having enough money to provide food for their family throughout the year. The national food hardship rate is 17.2%.
Feeding America released in August 2014 a nationwide Hunger in America report that concluded that approximately 1.1 million Arizonians struggle with hunger and poverty within our state borders. Did you know 3 out 5 kids living in Arizona qualify for free or reduced lunch at school? Or that 20% of food bank guests are seniors? And over 1 million Arizonians receive SNAP benefits!
