Association Of Arizona Food Banks President Stepping Down

Ginny-HildebrandThe head of the Association of Arizona Food Banks, Ginny Hildebrand, is stepping down after guiding development of a statewide food banking network that “kept hunger at bay” during the Great Recession.  Hildebrand says the non-profit has grown to include nearly 1,600 food pantries and agencies.

Hildebrand is proud that Arizona food banks provide more food per person than almost any other state in the country, including fresh produce. 

Despite the recession and the state’s huge population growth, she says food banks are helping about one million Arizonans a year with emergency and supplemental food boxes.
