Specialty Kits

In addition to supplying low-income families with food, Community Action Services and Food Bank seeks to meet other urgent needs. Some of these needs include hygiene and common household products. You can collect items for these kits and compile 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. Not all kits are created equal- meaning they do not have to have every item listed below. We’ll accept travel size, or family size of any item. Any donation would be greatly appreciated. 

Kits should be dropped off at the food bank warehouse located at 815 South Freedom Boulevard, Provo between 8 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you would like schedule a tour of the food bank when dropping off your donation, please contact Lauren Manzione at lmanzione@CommunityActionUC.org or by calling 801-691-5220.
