Cottonwood Properties Partners with Marana Community Food Bank on Expansion

TUCSON (KVOA) — The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona’s Marana branch will expand its services beyond feeding those in need.

Linda Hampton, the Community Food Bank of Marana Executive Director, said the food bank was “gifted two portable office units by Cottonwood Properties.”

“We are going to use those to provide additional services,” said Hampton. “We are going to partner with other agencies to be able to bring those services to the Marana area.”

Hampton said they will have computers available in the new resource center. Since the Gease-Marana Library closed in January, she said computers are needed.

“This will mean that people will have access to computers to do job searches, write their resumes,” she said. “The food bank itself, will remain the same size.”

Hampton said the Community Food Bank of Marana has about 100 volunteers and five full-time staff members.

She said they “could not do it without the volunteers” and the food bank will need more volunteers when the expansion is complete.

The resource center is set to open in the Fall.
