Giving Food

Hunger never takes a holiday or goes on vacation — you can make a huge impact anytime by donating food to the Community Action Food Bank.

With help from the community, local businesses, schools, religious groups, Scouts and individuals, we collect and distribute more than 3.5 millions pounds of food throughout Utah, Wasatch and Summit Counties.

Donations can be made by bringing items to the Community Action Food Bank located at 815 South Freedom Boulevard in Provo, Utah. In order to receive a donation receipt, donations must be made Monday-Friday, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. For after hour donations, please use the donation drop box.

Hosting a Food Drive

2011 Scouting for Food 034Want to make an impact? Host your very own food drive. Conducting a food drive is simple and easy. Whether you want to hold a drive in your neighborhood, office, or school, we’ll help you with the right materials.

You can promote food donations by placing bags or boxes in your office for group members to donate. Also consider promoting cash donations in your drive. There are real costs associated with placing and picking up food barrels as well as the sorting, storing and distributing of food. We cannot fulfill Community Action’s promise to the community without money to run our operations and programs.

Did you know that if you donate $1, Community Action can provide 5 meals or 15 lbs of food to those in need? Consider making a monetary donation here or consider hosting a virtual food drive to collect money for the food bank. Virtual food drives allow friends and family to participate without actually having to leave their homes.
