Agency Update: SMFBA Closed on 12/26 & 1/2 for the Holidays
Attention Partner Agency, 
All St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance (SMFBA) locations will be closed on Monday, December 26 and Monday, January 2 for the holidays. 
Due to the holidays, offices will be closed and no deliveries will be going out. Agencies with deliveries scheduled for the 1st and 4th Mondays of the month will be receiving notification regarding rescheduling for these dates. If your agency normally receives deliveries on the 1st and 4th Mondays of the month and have not received this notification, please contact our Hotline (480.291.3237) immediately. 

Also, if your agency has any scheduled closures for the holiday, we urge you to contact us, especially if your agency is scheduled to receive a delivery on the day of your closure. Arrangements will need to be made to either reschedule or cancel any deliveries. 

**FOR GROCERY RESCUE AGENCIES ONLY**
  • Pick-Up Agencies - If you haven't already communicated your holiday schedules with stores, please start having those conversations immediately. If you are interested in additional opportunities for Grocery Rescue pick-ups, please contact Jenn Krisak (480.688.0530) or Karla Cantu (602.343.5614) directly as soon as possible. 
Be sure to visit our new Partner Agency webpage on the SMFBA website for closure information and other useful agency resources: www.firstfoodbank.org/agencies.

We hope this information is valuable in helping you prepare for the holiday season. We encourage you to fully notify your staff and volunteers of any distribution changes to keep everyone on the same page. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks for all you do!
