Every day families living in poverty struggle with the question of where they will find food for the day or how they will pay their rent. Their needs are urgent and time sensitive.
Although specific needs change daily, there is always a need for food, funding and individuals willing to give up their time to serve the community. With a steady supply of each of these things, Community Action Services and Food Bank is able to provide food or services to more than 200 families per day. Your help is needed. Please select the link below that bests fits your interests or if you would like, join our Volunteer Opportunities email list to be kept up-to-date on urgent needs and other ways to serve.
If you have questions about volunteer opportunities, contact our volunteer coordinator by emailing VC@CommunityActionUC.org or by calling 801-691-5247.
The Community Action Food Bank and its pantries provide food for 150-200 families per day. These families are not the same individuals that come week in and week out, but new residents facing unforeseen challenges. On average, families come to seek services twice through our agency and never return. By donating food or organizing a food drive in your neighborhood, you can help provide meals to families in need.
In addition to food, CASFB is always in need of other basic essentials including: toilet paper, hygiene items and diapers. These items can be donated in the same manner as other donations.
CASFB also offers a number of services that assist individuals with employment, rent, utility bills and mortgage default. Adequate funding is necessary to keep these programs running. By donating money to CASFB you can help our services continue to serve people. To donate funds, click here.
