Fighting Hunger Statewide
For over 118 years, Utah Food Bank has stayed true to our objective of serving those in need throughout our state. We work tirelessly with community partners and volunteers to continue making an impact and fulfilling our mission of Fighting Hunger Statewide.
Last year, Utah Food Bank distributed 56.1 million meals via a statewide network of 230 partner agencies located in all 29 counties. In addition to being one of only a handful of food banks that distributes food free of charge to partner agencies, we also offer several direct service programs to help the most vulnerable populations in our state — children and seniors. By combining these direct service programs with our emergency food assistance services, we can truly impact the lives of Utahns who live in a world of food insecurity.
Utah Food Bank is currently in the process of a multi-pronged expansion project to more efficiently and effectively fight hunger here in Utah. Renovations are complete at our 26,000-square-foot Salt Lake expansion into the building immediately to our west, and volunteer projects are already happening in this space. We are almost doubling the size of our Southern Distribution Center in St. George and are hopeful for a November completion date. At our 77,000-square-foot Timpanogos Distribution Center in Springville, we have run into some supply chain issues but are hopeful construction will be completed in 2023. Plans for our 18,000-square-foot Southeastern Distribution Center in Blanding are ready to be submitted for final approval, and we are anxious to begin excavation. Land in Montezuma Creek has been secured for a pantry, and we are in negotiating to purchase property in Monument Valley for a pantry to serve residents of the Navajo Nation. We will post updates as we progress on our expansion, so check back for the latest news!
As Utah’s only member 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.
