Utah Food Bank's Holistic Approach to Fighting Hunger in 2015: Mobile School Pantries

1 in 5 Utah children faces the pain and anxiety of hunger. The impact of childhood hunger is far reaching: lack of sufficient food can fundamentally change the neurologoical structure of the brain and central nervous system, harming a child's ability to learn. Children who face hunger are more likely to be sick and chronically absent from school, and when they attend, they are more likely to have behavioral problems.

To better provide for these children, Utah Food Bank is initiating a Mobile School Pantry program beginning in the 2015-2016 school year. This innovative new program approaches childhood hunger in a more holistic way than other childhood hunger programs by focusing on feeding the entire family, not just the child. Distributing food right at local schools will help increase access points to food for families struggling with hunger.

Utah Food Bank stretches each $1 donated into $7.61 worth of goods and services, and 96 cents of each dollar goes directly to hungry Utahns. Last year alone, through gifts of food, time and money, we were able to distribute the equivalent of 31.3 million meals statewide.
