Hunger Isn't a Crisis Kids Should Have to Worry About

For families facing food insecurity, summer means one thing: hunger. They can no longer rely on school meals, and families who are already struggling have to try and find a way to ensure their kids don’t go to bed hungry. COVID-19 has only increased the number of people fighting to make ends meet and keep their children fed. Sadly, summer is also a time when donations slow down significantly. Through our Summer Business Food & Fund Drive, we encourage businesses and organizations of all sizes to host creative food or fund drives in the workplace because, just like hunger, businesses don’t take a summer break.

Partners Icon Host a Food Drive

Organize your family, friends or community group to help you collect and donate food on a larger scale. A food drive is an easy way to collect non-perishable food items for Utah Food Bank to distribute to those most in need. We encourage all those with an interest in helping hungry children and families to start a food drive. Any individual or group—be it a school, business, community group or church--can create a successful food drive! Please note: by providing your own collection receptacles and transportation, you significantly increase the impact of your donation.

No Shopping. No Lines. No Lifting. Our Virtual Food Drive allows you to “shop” for our most-needed items and cover related transportation costs, all without the hassle of having to visit a store. Whether you create a team or simply donate to the Virtual Food Drive, you will be able to capitalize on our bulk purchasing power! Get started by creating your own Virtual Food Drive, invite your friends and family to participate, and watch your impact grow!


Food Donations Change Lives!

Last year, Utah Food Bank distributed 45.7 million pounds of food (that’s 38 million meals) via our statewide network of 182 partner agencies, all free-of-charge. With 12% of Utah’s population, or 374,000 individuals, unsure where their next meal will come from, we have our work cut out for us! Together, we can fight hunger statewide.
