Every day Utahns Against Hunger has the opportunity to help struggling Utahns find resources to put food on the table. Sometimes that opportunity is helping an elderly person apply for food stamp benefits when a modest Social Security check just doesn't stretch far enough to include food. Other times, it's the opportunity to talk to our members of Congress about why federal nutrition programs are important and how they lift tens of thousands of Utah families out of poverty.
Your donation will give us the opportunity and the flexibility to be able to help people one- on-one and to respond to ongoing and emerging policy issues.
This year will be critical in terms of protecting and strengthening federal nutrition programs in Congress and advocating for funding that provides nutritious foods to emergency food pantries.
In communities throughout Utah there are families that struggle to put enough food on the table. We are working to change that. We train community partners to screen and enroll families in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. We provide resource information to hundreds of organizations throughout the state to help those they serve find the resources they need. It is your support that makes this possible.
