Thank you for your interest in the SMFBA's Grocery Rescue program. There are three ways in which partner agencies can participate:
- Direct Delivery - SMFBA drivers pick-up donations on their retail route and then deliver directly to the designated Grocery Retail partner agency on a daily/weekly basis. (Currently there is limited availability for this particular program but you can still show interest and be on our waiting list)! Please note: You must have the capacity to accept up to 10 pallets of food each delivery. Also, your agency must also be located within the Phoenix-metro area.
- Grocery Rescue Pick-up - The approved Grocery Rescue partner agency is assigned their own grocery rescue retail route and are responsible to pick-up donations on a daily basis. This could be one store/donor to multiple stops depending on the agency's capacity. On average, each Grocery Rescue Agency picks up donations from 3-6 donors.
- One Time Pick-up's - SMFBA will call the agency when we have a donor needing a one-time pick-up of donations. Approved agencies will be contacted on a rotating basis to assure fairness to all in this program.
Agreeing to a pick-up and then failing to follow through in any of the above programs will result in the agency being removed from the grocery rescue program.
Completing this survey shows your agency's interest to participate in the Grocery Rescue programs but does not guarantee acceptance to the program(s) by SMFBA.
