University of Utah Food Drive – Extended through Dec. 1

One in six Utah kids faces hunger. Your donation helps the Utah Food Bank and its
programs, including its BackPack Program (click on the photo for a short video).

The Alumni Association has kicked off its 24th annual food drive supporting the Utah Food Bank. We ask you as loyal U alumni to help us surpass our previous collection amounts. Donating is easy, and all money and food donated goes to the Utah Food Bank at this critical time of year. The Utah Food Bank can turn $1 donated into 8 pounds of food. Scroll down for all the ways you can participate!
