Central Utah Food Sharing Annual Holiday Food & Fund Drive
Central Utah Food Sharing asks public to use any bag to bring non-perishables to its location
Central Utah Food Sharing will be having their annual Holiday Food & Fund Drive Saturday, November 12 2016.
“This important campaign helps stock the shelves all year long,” said Roene Shaw, Central Utah Food Sharing Director.
The Utah Food Bank hopes to encourage people to Fight Hunger Statewide in a more eco-friendly way, and this year, Central Utah Food Sharing is working to reduce waste by not distributing donation bags. Instead, they are asking residents to please have donation bags visible from the street on the morning of Saturday, November 12. Youth groups will be there to pick them up; however, if you’re missed, Central Utah Food Sharing is asking donors to bring non-perishables in their own bag directly to Central Utah Food Sharing (2050 South Industrial Park Road, Richfield). In addition, their truck will be at the Salina LDS Stake Center.
“Hunger is such a critical need for our community to address,” said Shaw. “One of every five kids in Utah risk missing a meal today due to lack of resources. This time of year is one of hope and joy for so many people, but it can also be a tremendous strain for those who don’t have enough to eat. The donations we receive through the Holiday Food & Fund Drive will help residents in Sevier County and across the state well into 2017.”
