About the Utah Food Bank:

Utah Food Bank was founded in 1904 as the Salt Lake Charity Association.  Over its 100 years of operation under various names and in various forms, Utah Food Bank has remained committed to serving Utah's citizens in need.  Last year, Utah Food Bank distributed 36.3 million pounds of food to Utahns in need. This equates to 28.3 million meals distributed.  Utah Food Bank distributes food to all 29 counties in the state through their network of 130 emergency food pantries and agencies.  More than 220,000 hot, nutritious meals were served at 29 Kids Cafe sites during the past year.  They handed out more than 62,000 backpacks full of kid-friendly, nutritious food for children to take home with them over the weekend so that they have access to food when not in school.  The Utah Food Bank Food Box program allowed 42,000 food boxes to be hand-delivered to seniors and persons with disabilities.  Support the Utah Food Bank with your donation to KUER.
