We at AARP Utah care deeply about doing our part to reduce hunger in Utah; we deliver monthly food boxes to seniors and have raised thousands of dollars to help Utah Food Bank do their incredible work. But much more help is always needed. Did you know that 417,000 Utahns, which equates to 1 in 7 Utahns, are at risk of missing a meal today? Even more alarming is that 1 in 5 Utah kids are unsure where their next meal is coming from. We are hosting a Virtual Food & Fund Drive to benefit Utah Food Bank because we believe that no one should have to go to bed hungry in Utah. With your support, and Utah Food Bank’s purchasing power, we can truly make a difference in the lives of Utahns facing hunger.
Donating to our Virtual Food & Fund Drive is easy! Just select the items you would like Utah Food Bank to purchase on your behalf OR select the cash item to allow Utah Food Bank to utilize your donation where it’s most needed. Then check out and follow the steps to enter your payment information.
Utah Food Bank can turn every dollar you donate into approximately eight dollars worth of goods and services. Think of what an amazing difference our 220,000 AARP Utah members can make in this state! We value your memhbership greatly and ask you to consider making a donation.
Be sure to share this information with your friends and family so that we can become a top virtual food drive fundraiser for Utah Food Bank!
