Harvest Compassion Center (HCC) is a local food bank serving the greater Phoenix community. Our mission is to provide food and clothing in a hope-filled environment to the underserved in the greater Phoenix area. We do this by providing nutritious food and support services to individuals and families in need, helping to alleviate hunger and food insecurity in our area. Currently, HCC is facing an urgent need for non-perishable food donations to help fill our shelves.
Non-perishable foods are essential for food banks like HCC. Shelf-stable items can be safely stored for extended periods of time, allowing the food bank to maintain stock even when donations are low. Canned goods, dry goods, and other non-perishables also provide important nutritional value for those facing hunger. Your contribution to these items helps families access protein, grains, vegetables, and more to sustain healthy diets.
The impact of something as simple as a donated can of tuna or peanut butter can make a real difference for a hungry child or struggling parent. Non-perishable donations to HCC support hundreds of individuals in our community weekly. HCC has given hundreds of pounds of food and personal hygiene products to those in need, largely made possible by donations from people like you. Right now, HCC urgently needs the following non-perishable items to restock our shelves:
- Shaving cream
- Bar soap
- Peanut butter
- Strawberry jelly
- 1 pound bags of rice
These foods provide healthy fats, complex carbs, and other essential nutrients, and toiletries allow our most vulnerable community members to sustain their personal dignity. Your donation will ensure families can access these important staple foods and toiletries during a difficult time.
Donating non-perishable items to HCC is easy. You can drop off donations at the following facilities:
HCC North Phoenix:
4744 E. Thunderbird Rd., Ste. 9, Phoenix, Arizona 80532
Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to Noon
HCC West Phoenix:

Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to Noon
4002 N. 67th Ave., Phoenix, Arizona 85033
Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to Noon
If you cannot donate food items, there are other impactful ways you can support HCC’s mission, such as making a monetary contribution, volunteering your time, or spreading the word about our urgent needs. Every little bit helps!
The need for food assistance tends to spike around the holidays as families struggle with extra costs and expenses. Our busiest times are November and December when many families celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas, and your contribution will make the holidays a little brighter for our neighbors facing hunger. Help HCC fill our shelves this autumn by donating non-perishable foods and items.
