Drop off donations of food at three locations and make financial donations online. Drop-off sites include the Humana office at 2231 E. Camelback Road; Iora Primary Care at 3137 W. Indian School Road and Iora Primary Care at 3202 E. Greenway Road.

Humana and United Food Bank are working with Feeding America to help military members and veterans’ families. It is part of a partnership with Feeding America and the VFW to form a campaign called “Uniting to Combat Hunger.” A recent study revealed one in five homes served by a local food bank had at least one member who was currently serving in or who had served previously in the U.S. military.

Every $10 donated to this drive will help United Food Bank provide 50 meals. Visit feedaz.org to make a financial donation.
