  • ABOUT US | Utah Crisis Food Res

    ABOUT US We began in March, 2020 with just three college students. At that time, we created a small volunteer network to deliver food and prescription medications to elderly, quarantined, and confined people. Our goal was not to create a non-profit. We simply wanted to help at-risk individuals during the COVID pandemic. However, this volunteer network grew quickly. We saw firsthand the tremendous need for food assistance. This motivated us to build something permanent. With proper guidance, we shifted our efforts to become a mobile food pantry. We began partnering with food pantries to provide home delivery for those who struggle to pick up for themselves. This is our current focus. We are now a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. Our volunteers deliver nearly 4,000 meals per week to clients in Utah and Salt Lake County. We plan on being around for the long haul. We want to make sure that no individual, family, or community goes unfed. Heading 1

  • OUR PARTNERS | Utah Crisis Food Res

    We're fortunate enough to be able to partner with Tabitha's Way local food pantries of Spanish Fork and American Fork, Earth Community Gardens, and Unsheltered Utah Tabitha's Way Local Food Pantry was founded in June 2010 by Wendy & Jody Osborne, after Wendy felt inspired to help the food insecure in her local community of South Utah County. Wendy started her pantry in a small location on the backside of the business complex next to Stone Drug in Spanish Fork. Then in 2012, Tabitha’s Way moved into a larger space on Main Street in Spanish Fork to accommodate the growing needs of the community. In 2016, Tabitha’s Way was able to purchase and renovate a building located at 45 East 100 North in Spanish Fork, which became their new permanent home in March 2018. Today their Spanish Fork location provides food assistance to the food insecure in a service area of Springville to Santaquin. ​ When the COVID-19 pandemic happened, many of Tabitha's clients were unable to go to the pantry to receive the much needed food. We were able to partner with Tabitha's Way to provide delivery to their clients along with our regular grocery delivery services. ​ Tabitha's Way has 9,156 client shoppers and has provided approximately 1.6 million meals in 2020. 9,156 Client shoppers 1.6 m meals Both Earth Community Garden and Holladay Community Garden act as an umbrella organization for various community gardens all over. We manage, sponsor and invest in gardens than look to bring about community building, peace and justice through sound methods of tending to gardens. Each garden that we develop, promote or fund is unique in regards to how the garden operates with the populations they serve. ​ "We sustain our organization by the donated services & goods offered by the community. We have many civic services that we provide to our communities including; fruit picking, gardeners' markets, and free classes/workshops. We seek to work closely with ALL cities and organization to create similar groups within their communities. We love giving ideas and support to such groups, wherever they may be." - WDW (director) ​ Ideally, we would all be growing and consuming fresh, locally sourced food. However, we realize that hunger most often cannot wait the several months it takes to plant and grow your own food. There are also millions of pounds of food and grocery store waste being put into the landfills each day! So we help distribute this food to prevent it from becoming more human waste for the Earth. This food waste is both an environmental concern and a humanitarian concern that will ultimately effect the gardens we wish to grow. Seven locations 418 people served + Unsheltered Utah is a non-profit organization focused on meeting the immediate needs of the unsheltered residents of Utah, coordinating with existing social services, while working toward creating employment and permanent housing solutions. ​ Ours is a mission of humanity, so many individuals have been left feeling less than or even invisible to society. We look each person in the eye and listen to where they are sleeping, what they are facing, with intent to decipher specific needs. Each person has a story, and we are privileged to be trusted with them. Each story typically begins with trauma, and without the ability to navigate a path out of cycles of poverty, sadly many will end in the same way. We interrupt that cycle with hope, genuine care and connections to show that other paths exist. With our team of volunteers, we are putting in the work each week, providing a hot meal, and much needed supplies to encampments in Salt Lake City and Ogden. Our efforts have been widely shared and the general public have been incredibly generous in response with an overwhelming amount of physical goods donated. We have raised funds, purchased and distributed more than 750 blankets, 400 sleeping bags, over 100 tents, since our concentrated group efforts began in December of 2020. We have distribute hundreds of pounds of warm clothing, shoes, coats and food items each week. 100+ Ibs Food 750 blankets +
