There are as many faces of hunger as there are causes. Their stories are all around us: the overworked parents skipping meals to save money in the face of rising costs, the sick, retired widow who must choose between food and medicine, and the children who have adapted to the hollow ache of hunger.
Because of you, their stories aren’t without hope. Last year, your contributions helped us distribute 70.2 million pounds of food, the equivalent of 58.5 million meals. You’ve put food into the hands of tens of thousands of neighbors experiencing incredible hardship.
Still, the level of hunger in Utah remains high. 410,000 of our neighbors are facing food insecurity right now – that’s more than the population of Salt Lake City, Provo and St. George combined!
Your support today will help us continue our mission of Fighting Hunger Statewide and provide food to our neighbors facing hunger. Every $10 you donate helps distribute $87.10 worth of goods and services, putting much-needed food on the tables of children, seniors and families in need through this ongoing crisis.
Even without the current crisis of rampant inflation as Utahns struggle to recover after the devastating impacts of the pandemic, summer is a tough time for families struggling to make ends meet and fill empty tummies without the help of school meals. Your generosity can make all the difference for children and families facing hunger in the summer months ahead.
Help us start new stories that spark hope – and begin with thank you – by donating today!
