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.

Last year, Utah Food Bank distributed over 31 million meals via a statewide network of 134 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: almost 245,000 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 60,000 backpacks with food to help ensure hunger-free weekends for children during times when they don't have access to school meal programs.
  • Food Box Programs: we delivered almost 41,000 food boxes to homebound seniors and people with disabilities last year. 
  • Mobile Pantries: last year we served more than 224,000 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.
