Summer is a challenging time for many. The need for assistance is particularly high for families with school-aged kids who rely on school meals to help feed their families during the school year. At the same time, donation levels are low, with the holiday season and holiday spirit of giving months away. But you don’t have to wait for the holidays to rally your business around a cause and help our neighbors in need. Today is the perfect day to get involved because hunger doesn’t take a break, and neither does your business.
The Summer Business Food & Fund Drive is a great opportunity to join us in Fighting Hunger Statewide while uniting your business and generating some great team spirit. Our sponsor, Les Olson Company, has been doing just that for the past 20 years. Scot Olson, their Director of Marketing, shared with us what it means to them to continue to support our mission year after year, “Through donating Time, Money, and Food, we have been able to provide enough for over a million meals. We are so excited about this because we know it helps our community and those who need a hand up during a moment of need. We would recommend the Utah Food Bank to anyone who wants to help because they are great at what they do and make a big difference in our community.”
August has just begun, and there’s only one month left in our Summer Business Food & Fund Drive. If you’ve thought about having your business or organization join this year, but feel like maybe it’s too late…it’s not! With our virtual food drive option, it’s easy to get started today!
Big thanks to ALL the businesses and organizations of every size participating in this year’s drive. Whether in office or virtual, we appreciate your generosity in helping our neighbors facing food insecurity.
