    Event details and schedule

     Charitable Partner 


    The Hot Summer Nights serves as a fundraiser for St. Mary's Food Bank.

    With your support, we offer an array of programs designed to relieve hunger. Here are some of the many ways we assist the communities of Arizona.

    Food Distribution

    St. Mary’s distributes food to nearly 500 nonprofits partners in 13 Arizona counties. These agencies include food pantries, dining halls, homeless shelters, and more.

    Children's Feeding Programs

    One in three children in Arizona lives in poverty and is at risk of going to bed hungry tonight. Arizona ranks 47th out of 50 states in the number of children who may not know where their next meal is coming from. Our vision is to see that no child goes to bed hungry, so they can live healthy and productive lives. In response to these needs, St. Mary’s Food Bank operates programs that fight child hunger, including Kids Cafe® and the Backpack Program.

    Community Kitchen

    The Community Kitchen is a life skills and food service training program for those with barriers to employment. Students gain the skills to get jobs offering livable wages, benefits, and opportunities for advancement through hands-on food service training as well as classroom studies.
