Utah Food Bank: Fighting Hunger Statewide

For over 100 years, the Utah Food Bank has stayed true to its mission of serving those in need throughout our state. We work tirelessly with community partners and volunteers to continue making an impact.

Feeding America is the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity. - See more at: http://feedingamerica.org/how-we-fight-hunger/about-us/mission-and-values.aspx#sthash.19beos8X.dpuf

Last year, Utah Food Bank distributed over 31 million meals via a statewide network of 140 partner agencies located in all 29 counties. In addition to being one of only a handful of food banks that distributes food free-of-cost to partner agencies, we also offer several direct service programs:

  • Kids Cafe: nearly 283,000 meals served last year at after-school programs. These meals often serve as participant's last meal of the evening.
  • BackPack Program: last year we distributed more than 63,000 backpacks with food to help sustain children during weekends when they don't have access to school meal programs.
  • Food Box Programs: we delivered over 40,000 food boxes to homebound seniors and people with disabilities last year. 
  • Mobile Pantries: last year we served more than 165,000 individuals throughout the state in communities that are underserved by traditional brick-and-mortar pantries.

As the only member in our state of Feeding America's nationwide network of more than 200 food banks, we are proud to be a part of the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief organization.
