Our team spent the day putting together supplemental food boxes for seniors. We also had the opportunity to tour the new facility and learn about many different services the food bank provided in the community.

I have been to the Utah Food Bank in past years. The new building is a vast improvement in location, parking, and organization. I brought a group of 25 youth and adults. We were welcomed by friendly staff and given clear directions about what to do. The building was clean and the working conditions comfortable. This was the first time many in our group had worked at the food bank. Thank you for giving them a positive experience.

Utah Food Bank provided a great place to volunteer on Monday evening. They were prepared for us the moment we walked in the door and kept us busy until we left. We had a blast packaging french fries and loved wearing the hair nets. Once we were done with that project we had some extra time to decorate some boxes. What a perfect evening, complete with warm fuzzies!

By seeing all of the hard work that volunteers put in every day to make this organization run. People that work there and volunteer there love what they are doing and make it a great place to spend time.

We really had a lot of fun putting cooking instructions and ingredient statements on to donated pizzas. We were then given a tour of the building. I never realized how big the place was and how much food goes thru there to the various sites. And how big the need in the Salt Lake valley is.

As a company we volenteered with three tasks. We packaged spaghetti that was donated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints into 2 lb bags. Then our assistance was needed in getting a mailer out that had been delayed by the post office. Our last task was to decorate boxes that are filled with food and delivered to senior citizens who are home bound. Over all we had a great time volenteering at the food bank and plan to help out in the near future.

I havne't personally experienced any results from the Utah Food Bank, but I'm grateful that they are able to assist those who need it. In our day and age we never know who's going to need help.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

helping them with anything they needed done.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The Staff that we were able to work with seemed to enjoy their jobs and took pride in what they do.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide more food assistance to thousands of people around our state.

My Roommates went on a group date to the Utah Food Bank to volunteer. While there they had us go through the salvaged and damaged foods from the grocery stores and compile boxes of assorted food items for the food pantry’s throughout the state to give out to those in need. We have never done this before and all of us had a great time! Everyone commented about how much they enjoyed our experience. The Food bank staff were organized and fun to work with. The best part was that we all left with a good feeling knowing that we had done something good for not only a great organization but that really will help those in need.
