About Utah Food Bank
Utah Food Bank
For over 118 years, Utah Food Bank has been steadfast in its commitment to addressing the pervasive issue of hunger across the state. Our unwavering dedication to our mission aptly encapsulated in the phrase "Fighting Hunger Statewide," is a testament to the resilience of our organization. We recognize that the fight against hunger necessitates a collaborative effort, and as such, we work tirelessly in conjunction with community partners and a devoted cadre of volunteers to make a profound impact. Our collective efforts culminated in the distribution of an impressive 56.1 million meals last year through a comprehensive statewide network of 230 partner agencies spread across all 29 counties of Utah.
Distinguishing ourselves as one of the few food banks that provide food free of charge to our partner agencies, we also extend our reach to the most vulnerable segments of our population—children and seniors. Our suite of direct service programs, in tandem with our emergency food assistance services, bolsters our ability to positively affect the lives of Utahns who grapple with the harsh reality of food insecurity. Utah Food Bank's affiliation with Feeding America, the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief organization, further underscores our commitment to the cause. We are proud to be Utah's sole representative in this nationwide network of over 200 food banks, reinforcing our position at the forefront of the battle against hunger.
