About Community Action Provo

Community Action Services and Food Bank is a non-profit organization in Provo, Utah that provides a two-step process to solving poverty: first, to stabilize the person and then rebuild their life. Since 1967, the agency has stabilized persons in need by meeting their basic critical needs (such as food and housing) while providing them with the long-term solutions needed to rebuild their financial and social self sufficiency, enabling them to break out of poverty.

Our Mission

Community Action Services and Food Bank is dedicated to fostering self-reliance in individuals, families, and communities.

Promise of Community Action

Community Action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live. We care about the entire community, and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.
