Utah’s tech industry is booming, but 1 in 8 Utahns aren’t getting their most basic needs met – one of those being food. Silicon Slopes Serves is rallying Utah’s tech companies, and the larger community as a whole, to pack 1 million meals for Utah Food Bank at the Silicon Slopes Tech Summit on January 30 and 31, held at the Salt Palace in downtown Salt Lake City. Made possible by the partnerships with BrainStorm, JustServe and Hunger Fight, along with generous donations from participating Silicon Slopes community members and Latter-day Saint Charities, the meals will aim to help feed the 1 in 7 Utah children who face hunger.
Whether or not you are a conference attendee, you can still be a part of this monumental initiative by signing up to volunteer at the event for an hour (or two) anytime between 12:00 – 7:00pm on Thursday 1/30 or Friday 1/31 using this link. Please note that this volunteer opportunity is located at the Salt Palace, not our warehouse. Invite your friends, family or coworkers to join Utah’s tech industry to pack healthy, easy-to-prepare meals that we will distribute from childhood hunger programs, including our Mobile School Pantry program.
Donors for the initiative include: Kristin and Jeremy Andrus, BrainStorm, Domo, Four Foods Group (Mo’ Bettahs, Swig and R&R BBQ) , Health Catalyst, Lendio, LHM Group, MX, SaltStack, Monica and Aaron Skonnard, Lisa and Karl Sun, Qualtrics and additional support from Latter-day Saint Charities.
Thank you for your support!
