February is a month to share your heart and your love with others. Why not consider sharing your heart with the tens of thousands of Utahns still struggling to get back on their feet after a tough year by signing up to become a sustaining donor?
When you join the Meal Makers Monthly Giving Club, your donation will be automatically deducted every month and go where it’s needed most in the fight against hunger. It’s the most efficient way to help all year long!
Joining our Meal Makers Monthly Giving Club ensures a predictable source of income we can count on – so that our statewide network of partner agencies and food pantries keep their shelves stocked. Plus, monthly giving is the easiest and most cost-effective way to give to Utah Food Bank, allowing us to put even more of your contribution to work. We can turn each dollar you donate into $8.03 worth of goods and services. And if your circumstances change, you can increase or lower the amount you give at any time.
In 2019, the number of Utahns facing food insecurity was 374,000, including 1 in 7 children. In 2020 those already high numbers skyrocketed to 511,000 Utahns and 1 in 5 children. The pandemic has devastated so many of our neighbors. Some who were living paycheck to paycheck now find themselves out of work. Many who never needed outside help before now find themselves needing our support for the first time. So this year, resolve to make a difference in the lives of your neighbors. Resolve to put food in the hungry tummies of children, relieve some of the burden for struggling families, and give comfort to homebound seniors and disabled clients. Then let us help you keep that resolution all year.
