HART Pantry is a beacon of hope for at-risk teens, offering a crucial food assistance program. We strive to alleviate hunger among teens during weekends and school breaks, ensuring no teen goes without food. Since 2011, our initiative, rooted in the First Presbyterian Church of Peoria, AZ, has expanded into a robust community outreach program. We extend our reach and impact by collaborating with various non-profits in the West Valley and receiving support from individual community members and corporate partners.

HART Pantry welcomes donations in cash or shelf-stable items, such as, Peanut Butter (10-16oz jars), Protein Bars, Toaster Pastries, Pudding or Fruit Cups, Juice Boxes, Ramen Noodles and Assorted Canned Pasta. We also are in need of $25 gift cards to Walmart and/or Target, new or gently used bikes and toiletries (travel size).
