Specialty Kits

In addition to supplying low-income families with food, Community Action Services and Food Bank seeks to meet the other urgent needs of low-income families. These needs include having access to hygiene products. You can help us meet these needs by collecting items for these kits and compiling them into large Ziploc bags to be given to families.

There are several different kinds of kits, each of which is outlined below. Your group can focus on a particular type of kit or compile several different types. Any donation would be greatly appreciated.

Kits may be dropped off at the food bank warehouse located at 815 South Freedom Boulevard, Provo between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you would like schedule a tour of the food bank when dropping off your donation, please contact Craig Severinsen at CraigS@CommunityActionUC.org or by calling 801-691-5237.
