Food Bank

IMG_5121

Community Action Services and Food Bank is the second largest food bank in Utah. Last year, nearly 5 million pounds of food were collected and distributed by the food bank to our partner agencies throughout Utah, Wasatch and Summit counties.

As a food bank, we rely on the generous contributions of our community to help supply our clients and partner agencies with food needed to fight hunger.

Through our grocery rescue program, in partnership with many local grocery stores, we are able to provide many nutritional items such as bread, fresh fruit vegetables, meats, eggs, and other dairy products.

To help us, you can host a food drive, drop off your contributions to the closest pantry, or make a donation.

Did you know that for only $1 we are able to purchase about 15 pounds of food? This is done through our grocery rescue program and our outreach with local farmers and grocery stores to provide bread, fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as meat and other highly requested items. Multiply your impact by considering a  financial donation along with your food donatation.

Donations can be dropped off at our Provo location Monday- Friday 8 am-5 pm. One of our employees will weigh in your donation and send you on your way with a receipt. Drop off after-hours donations through the chute by the warehouse doors.

We accept canned food in good condition that have expired within the last 4 years. Canned meats and fruits are always in high demand. Check out our most needed items!

Have any extra produce from your garden? Bring it down; our clients appreciate fresh food just as much as you do!

Still have questions? Call Dave Smith at 801-691-5201 for more information.

If you are in need of emergency food assistance, please visit one of our food pantries. At the pantry, you will have the opportunity meet with one of our trained counselors to *assess your situation and review your budget. The counselor may also provide referrals to other programs and resources that you may qualify for. In order to help in this endeavor, it is necessary to bring the following documentation with you to the food pantry when seeking assistance:

One of the following for everyone in the household:

*During this meeting, a counselor will determine if the food pantry is the appropriate resource to help meet your basic needs, and how often you can return to the food bank to receive a food order (enough food to last approximately two weeks).
