Did you know that 1 in 5 children in Utah struggles with hunger?

In every school in Utah, there are students who struggle knowing where their next meal will come from. Many of these students qualify for free or reduced lunch during the school year. Additionally, other programs exist to provide healthy, easy-to-prepare meals and snacks to sustain them through the weekend. However, when school is out for the summer, these students miss out on these helpful meals.

To specifically alleviate childhood hunger when school is out, Bank of Utah is collecting food this spring for local pantries to distribute to children and families in need:

  • Cache Community Pantry - Logan
  • Tremonton Community Pantry - Tremonton
  • Box Elder Community Pantry - Brigham City
  • Joyce Hansen Hall Food Bank - Ogden
  • Ogden-Weber Community Action Partnership (OWCAP) - Ogden
  • Bountiful Community Pantry - Bountiful
  • Crossroads Urban Center - Salt Lake City
  • Peace House - Heber
  • Community Action Services and Food Bank - Provo
  • Carbon Caring for Kids - Price
  • Switchpoint - St. George


Here are suggested non-perishable food items for kids to feed themselves, but anything will be accepted (no glass containers please!):

Needed Items Include:
Canned Pasta Canned Stew
Canned Chili Pasta Sauce
Canned Meat Granola Bars
Fruit Cups Peanut Butter
Mac & Cheese Oatmeal Packets
Fruit Snacks Cheese & Peanut Butter Crackers

Donations can be made at any Bank of Utah location throughout Utah:
