About

The Arizona Partnership to End Childhood Hunger is a collaborative effort between families, state and local government and community based organizations, volunteers and anti-hunger professionals.

The Partnership’s steering committee is the Arizona Department of Economic Security’s Hunger Advisory Council.  The primary function of the Hunger Advisory Council to advise the Director of Arizona’s Department of Economic Security on food security issues within Arizona.   Any funds gathered on behalf of the Partnership will be dispersed under the supervision of the Arizona Department of Economic Security Hunger Advisory Council and the Arizona Department of Economic Security Hunger Relief Program Manager.   The Partnership’s fiduciary is the Association of Arizona Food Banks.

Community Conversations
The Arizona Hunger Advisory Council facilitated Community Conversations to solicit input on the Strategies for putting an end to childhood hunger in Arizona.  Here are the handouts used in those community meetings:

Executive Summary
Community Presentation
 

Currently

  • The Food Stamp Program serves only 60% of the potentially eligible individuals
  • The School Breakfast Program serves only 39.8% of the children qualified for free or reduced price School Lunch.
  • 12.8% of these same children are participating in the Summer Food Service Program– ranking Arizona dead last among the U.S. in feeding children when school is out of session.
  • 64% of potentially eligible women, infants and children are participating in the WIC program.
  • 30% of those eligible have access to the Commodity Supplemental Food Program with assigned limits of 15,800 slots for women, children to age 6, and low income elderly who are approved to participate.

A Smart Investment
The efforts to end childhood hunger in Arizona will increase participation rates in Federal Nutrition Programs which will potentially bring millions annually in currently unclaimed federal dollars into the Arizona economy, producing direct dividends of $7.00 for each $1.00 invested in ending childhood hunger. But the benefits will extend far beyond this. We will see lower Medicaid costs, improved academic performance, reduced social service demands, a stronger economy, and a better quality of life in Arizona’s neighborhoods when all children receive the food and nutrition they need.
