Desert Foothills Land Trust works with landowners, communities and partners to protect the most special and important natural areas in the Arizona communities of Carefree, Cave Creek, north Scottsdale, north Phoenix, Anthem and New River. The nonprofit Land Trust has permanently protected 620 acres on 17 preserves, many of which are open to the public for exploration and passive recreation. The Land Trust also offers opportunities for community members to engage directly in land conservation through guided hikes, volunteer activities and other events and programs. In 2010, the Land Trust was awarded accredited status by the national Land Trust Accreditation Commission – the first land trust in Arizona to achieve this designation. The Land Trust is supported by gifts and grants from community members, as well as the volunteer efforts of dozens of families and individuals. More information is available at http://www.dflt.org or 480-488-6131.

In 1988, the food bank was founded because there was a large Hispanic population that was in need. Today the majority of the population that we are serving is non-Hispanic. In the beginning we would see, on average, 45 families a month. Today we see over 500 families per month.
Seniors in need are the fastest growing demographic that we serve. They struggle to make ends meet on fixed incomes. The food they receive from the Foothills Food Bank helps them to be able to pay other expenses.
We are also seeing more people that are either living in their car or out in the desert. We are trying to help them with additional resources. We have volunteers that will meet with a client one-on-one to aid them in finding resources that will get them out of those situations and into a more comfortable living environment, particularly in the warm summer months.
Due to current economic conditions, the number of Food Bank clients continues to increase by 10% per year, and our area is increasing. We now cover North to Black Canyon City, South to Pinnacle Peak, East to Rio Verde and West to I-17. We expect that these needs will continue.
The Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center provides food for those in need, financial assistance to individuals and families in the foothills area and referral information for any number of programs and helpful organizations.
