Utah Food Bank Fights Hunger Statewide and distributed over 31 million meals through 134 emergency food pantries and partners statewide.

Utah Food Bank exists to provide a hand-up for families and individuals struggling with the hardships of poverty and access to one of our basic rights: Food. With 17.6% of Summit County children and 4,610 Summit County residents unsure where their next meal will come from, Summit County residents are not immune to the pangs and pains of hunger.

Utah Food Bank stretches each $1 donated into $7.61 worth of goods and services for hungry Utahns, and 96 cents of each dollar goes directly to hungry Utahns.

Utah Food Bank, in partnership with The Christian Center of Park City (CCPC), brings “weekends without hunger” through our BackPack program to at-risk children living in Park City and attending McPolin, Trailside, Parley’s Park and Jeremy Ranch Elementary Schools. The children who receive this service come from families living at or below federal poverty level and are referred to the program by an education professional at their school.

Through the BackPack Program, these children receive kid-friendly, nutritional, single-serve food to eat over weekends or holiday breaks. Each week, 290 backpacks full of food are distributed through these four schools.

The BackPack program creates and delivers nutritious food to hungry children to help sustain them through the weekend until they return to school. Because so many of the children in this program prepare meals on their own, food provided is easy to open, child friendly, and in single servings.

At the beginning of the school year, children in the program receive a new back pack to use and keep. Last year, close to 245,000 backpacks of food were distributed to participating children. Statewide, Utah Food Bank’s BackPack program partners with 33 after-school programs.

Utah Food Bank Fights Hunger Statewide by collecting, purchasing, and distributing food to Utahns facing hunger in all 29 counties through our statewide network of 134 food pantries and agency partners. Last year alone, through gifts of food, time, and money we were able to distribute the equivalent of 31.3 million meals statewide.
