Christmas Food Bag Fund

With 1,000+ children in our Heber Valley experiencing food insecurity, we wanted our most vulnerable population to not go hungry over the school break during the Christmas holidays.

Weekend Backpack Fund

One in eight children in the state of Utah go hungry, and about 1,000 of those live here in Wasatch County. Youth don’t go to food pantries, so our Human Services Pillar provides a program where the food pantries go to them. School-age children can discretely come and load their backpacks at school with food for the weekend.
