Our Mobile School Pantry Program is hunting for volunteers!

How it works is each month during the school year, our Utah Food Bank truck arrives at a school where one of our coordinators and volunteers unload and bag product about 30 minutes before school gets out. Then once the bell rings, we assist kids and their parents as they sign in and take food home for their families.

The amount of food distributed varies depending on the availability of donated and purchased foods, yet it’s usually 15-18 lbs. of food in 3 bags. Lastly after the distribution is over, we clean up and move the leftover bags wherever the school would like to store them. It’s around an 1 - 1 ½ hour time commitment for this hands-up, supplementary groceries program.

We have 7 elementary schools in Utah County that would appreciate any volunteers:

  • Provo District has 1 schools
    • Franklin
  • Alpine District has 6 schools
    • Cherry Hill
    • Westmore
    • Parkside
    • Bonneville
    • Windsor
    • Mahogany

Volunteers can sign up for a particular school and I can send the dates of that school OR tell me a time frame and I can share which schools are being run that week.

Volunteers must be at least 16 years old.

Join us for this fun and rewarding opportunity! Great service project for a group of (6-8) service-minded youth or adults.

Please contact either Hailey Mowen at haileym@utahfoodbank.org or Isabella Reynolds at isabellar@utahfoodbank.org

Thanks!

Mission Statement

Fighting Hunger Statewide

Description

For over 110 years, Utah Food Bank has stayed true to our objective of serving those in need throughout our state. We work tirelessly with community partners and volunteers to continue making an impact and fulfilling our mission of Fighting Hunger Statewide.

Last year, Utah Food Bank distributed 32.7 million meals via a statewide network of 149 partner agencies located in all 29 counties. In addition to being one of only a handful of food banks that distributes food free-of-charge to partner agencies, we also offer several direct service programs to help the most vulnerable populations in our state - children and seniors. By combining these direct service programs with our emergency food assistance services, we can truly impact the lives of Utahns who live in a world of food insecurity.

As Utah’s only member of Feeding America’s nationwide network of more than 200 food banks, we are proud to be a part of the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization
