The Provo Food and Care Coalition provide a great service to the community. I always look forward to the days that I get to volunteer there. Not only because it helps put my own life in perspective, but also because of the great staff have I have the opportunity to interact with.

The Food and Care Coalition does so much for the clients it serves. I am amazed at the leadership of this organization and their vision to make a difference in people's lives. They truly care about people. I have had the privilege of talking with some of the clients through a research project and have had some of my students volunteer in the organization. In addition, a representative from their organization always guest lectures in one of my courses providing students with valuable knowledge about this community organization. I greatly appreciate my association with them and look forward to our continued association in the future!

I helped drop off a delivery at the food & care last year around Christmas time. There were people there sorting through boxes of clothing and other items that had been donated for their use. I remember being struck by a beautiful little Asian Family. Usually when we think of homelessness we think of a single man or woman on the streets but we often don't think of children and families. Well, here was a family that was being served by this organization. It was striking to see the gratitude they had to find a helping hand and their happiness in receiving warm clothing to dress their children for properly for the cold winter months. This moment will stay with me forever. We need to do all we can to reach out to members of our community that are in unexpected circumstances, dire circumstances. And this organization is doing just that. One precious life at a time.

What a great organization. I have recently began to donate my time at the Food and Care Coalition. This is a well run and caring place. The attention to detail and time spent with each person is unmatched. Many lives are touched and changed; not only the lives of those in need, but the lives of those who give of their time and talents. It is a place where true charity is expressed.

The Food and Care Coalition is a wonderful facility supported by kind, non judgemental individuals. I have especially been impressed with the Share A Smile group in the dental clinic. I know they put in long hours and enjoy the service they give.

I can not say enough about the wonderful programs this agency provides for the community. They assist their clients by providing nourishment for both the body and spirit. They show compassion, love, respect and allow them to feel like complete human beings. My students and I have been taught so much by the clients we treat in their dental clinic. The UVU Dental Hygiene Students come back so very glad to have been able to educate and improve their clients oral health. Thank you, for gving us the opportunity to be a small part of such a terrific organization.

I am a dentist, and volunteer at the food and care coalition dental clinic. There are many organizations that would like me to donate my time, but I only donate to one - the food and care coalition, and I'll tell you why. I love that they ask the patrons to provide hours of community service before they receive services such as dental work. I've seen people that receive something for nothing, and it means close to nothing to them. It doesn't help them to better themselves and their situation, it doesn't improve their self esteem, and it does very little to change a life. When I provide dentistry for a food and care coalition patron, I know they have helped someone in return. I see a different sort of confidence in their eyes, and I see true gratitude. They know what it takes to give, so they truly appreciate my gift. This an an organization that will use any gift you give, and pay it forward many times over. Thank you for giving to my favorite organization.

I started working with the dental program when we ran a temporary dental clinic in the lunchroom. I've seen this program grow into a permanent four chair dental clinic with many volunteer dentists and other dental professionals. This is an organization that is growing and changing to fit the needs of the population it serves.

Work to expand the reach of the dental clinic. I know there are many people that have a need that can't qualify for the services, and I know the volunteers would come if the need were greater.

I volunteer in the dental clinic at the Food and Care Coalition every Friday. I have seen many lives changed by the various services that are provide to the clients there. Their confidence and self-esteem are returned, they are then able to find employment and return to the mainstream of their communities.

I've really been impressed with all the things the food and care does for those people that really are in need. They really do care about the well being of these people and try and do everything they can to help these people get on there feet.

I feel that the Food & Care coalition does an effective job of providing for those who need help while maintaining the highest level of dignity for their clients. The ability to receive aid in exchange for community service gives their clients such a lift in self worth that I feel their formula is magic.
