We are looking for a new home!
Thank you for your patience & understanding.
We are expanding our programs and services to better serve tristate families.
We will be permanently relocating during Spring 2020.

'Senior Health & Nutrition' every 1st & 3rd Thursday - Location TBA
WOW Mobile Pantry @Rotary Park - BHC is every third Friday monthly 11:00am until 2:00pm.
We do our food & health ministry work by focusing on locally-based nutrition & lifestyle outreach efforts including education, nutrition awareness, food aid, life coaching, health screenings and lifestyle accommodations. We work hard to make a difference in peoples lives. At Caring Hearts Food Bank Ministry, we provide more than just nutritious food boxes to food insecure families, Veterans, Seniors on fixed incomes, students & youth, unemployed, under-employed, displaced and homeless. We aspire to show compassion to people's silent suffering by empowering families with education, authentic kindness, and by helping to restore their dignity with a nutritious FreshChoice.
We work diligently to improve access to food throughout the tristate. Our popular WOW Mobile pantry pops-up in a neighborhood near you monthly. This free food program is distributed "Farmer's Market Style". However, the one difference from traditional mobile markets is we offer rescued produce and assorted pantry items - imperfectly delicious, blemished seconds that would be slated for a landfill. Help us be part of the affordable solution with free, unrestricted access that benefits the environment, and combats food insecurity, hunger and poverty throughout the River Valley Tristate.
Maintaining healthy, happy environments is an important, and often neglected part of aid work.
Empty stomachs hurt. They break concentration and make the future seem impossible. Healthy food choices are essential to creating healthy people. Not only do we meet dietary needs, but we offer free bi-monthly health vitals, cooking classes, nutrition classes, and family lifestyle education for those who are interested.
We do our best to look for the most nutritious foods we can procure so that we can deliver a ready supply of meal items for each family we service. A lot of planning goes into our nutritious food choices. We work with our local community leaders and donors to provide food and assistance to over 15,000 families in our tristate areas. It is our desire to show authentic kindness and restore dignity with a FreshChoice. We pride ourselves in being a zero-waste organization with environmentally sustainable practices that search out the best available, nutritious foods for your household.
We aspire to be completely accountable to our Communities, Clients, Donors, Volunteers, Staff and Board, so that we will do the best we can to alleviate hunger and chronic diet-related disease in the Tristate area of Arizona, California and Nevada. Our focus is on community efforts to resolve food insecurity, provide nutritious food aid, and expand community lifestyle awareness. Where there are people in need, we will be there lending a caring heart & helpful hand, a smile, and an encouraging word.
WOW MOBILE PRODUCE PANTRY: WOW FreshChoice Pantry is a neighborhood mobile pantry with permanent and pop-up locations throughout Mohave County and tristate region. We provide free, unrestricted access to fresh produce and pantry items 'With Out Waste'. Everyone is welcome to attend.
OPERATION FEED OUR VETS: We are continually working hard to honor our Veterans by creating special programs that give them and their families nutritious food, gently used clothing,
health screenings, vitals & blood sugar checks, Military information, financial aid outreach,
and help with finding homeless Veterans a place to live.
SENIOR HEALTH & NUTRITION: We work hard to respect our Senior population by creating 'special request' programs that give nutritious food, and includes personal and dietary essentials, health screenings, vitals & blood sugar checks, Senior information, and lifestyle resources and outreach services.
WORKING FAMILIES: We have created a FreshChoice Pantry with alternate hours, mobile capabilities and weekend services which include healthy kid choices for those with food allergies.
STUDENTS & YOUTH: We collaborate with Teachers, Schools and youth organizations to create sustainable food programs for school lunch, after school, summers and weekends. We also offer educational programs for cooking, gardening, nutrition and lifestyle.
Isaiah 58: 10-13
If you extend your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you shall be as bright as day. The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy with all good things, and keep you healthy too; and you will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.
