Chart by Rosemary Douglas

The Tri-Community Food Bank (TCFB) has more than 500 families, with 1,500 individuals registered and eligible to receive twice-a-month food boxes. These families are our neighbors in Mammoth, San Manuel, Oracle, and Dudleyville.

In 2023, the generosity of SaddleBrooke and SaddleBrooke Ranch residents, especially during the annual SaddleBrooke Community Outreach (SBCO) Food Drive, enabled the TCFB to alleviate hunger for an increasing number of our neighbors in need.

In addition to twice monthly food boxes, last year the TCFB also distributed 278 blankets, 232 Thanksgiving meals, 211 Christmas meals, Christmas gifts for 43 families, and many hygiene products and other extras to our member families. We purchased more than $145K worth of food in 2023. This was to supplement our Food Drive and United Food Bank donations, so we could provide the makings for complete, nutritious meals for our families.
