Our journey started with a simple vision: to ensure that nobody in our community goes to bed hungry. Over the years, our commitment has only strengthened, as we continue to adapt and expand our programs to best serve the evolving needs of our community.
At Matthew's Crossing Food Bank, our mission is clear - to alleviate hunger and inspire hope by providing nutritious food and resources to those who need it most.

Our Programs and Services
Through our comprehensive range of programs and services, we address the multifaceted challenges of food insecurity:
1. Emergency Food Assistance
Our emergency food assistance program ensures that immediate nourishment is provided to individuals and families during times of crisis. We understand that life can be unpredictable, and nobody should go hungry due to unforeseen circumstances. By partnering with local businesses, farmers, and community members, we are able to maintain a consistent supply of nutritious food to distribute to those in need.
2. Mobile Food Pantries
Recognizing that transportation can be a barrier for some individuals, especially the elderly or those with limited mobility, our mobile food pantries bring the nourishment directly to different communities within Prescott. By strategically locating these pantries, we aim to enhance accessibility and ensure that nobody is left behind when it comes to accessing healthy food options.
3. Back-to-School Nutrition Program
Education and nutrition go hand in hand, which is why our back-to-school nutrition program plays a critical role in supporting the well-being of children in the community. By providing nutritious meals and snacks to students, we help bridge the gap between hunger and education. We believe that by empowering children with healthy meals, we empower them to succeed academically and beyond.
4. Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Education Program (SNAP)
As part of our commitment to comprehensive assistance, we also offer support and guidance with the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Our dedicated staff members can help eligible individuals and families navigate the application process, ensuring they receive the resources they need to put nutritious food on their tables.
