Holiday: Time to Donate

So many of us are blessed to be able to eat delicious and healthy meals every night. But did you know that one in every five Utah children go hungry for one week out of every month? And with Thanksgiving just a couple of days away, it's time to think about those who may have to go without if we don't step up. This time of year is the perfect time to donate your time, money or goods.

According to the Utah Food Bank, Utah is ranked #4 in the nation for the highest rate of food insecurity. That means that over 340,000 Utahns are at risk of missing a meal today because they don't have the resources.

Most schools hold food drives this time of year, as well as your local grocery store. Look for the food bank closest to you, or donate to one of the resources listed below. We have a lot to be thankful for - now it's our turn to help others to find reasons to be thankful!

The Food & Care Coalition in Provo (www.foodandcare.org) is another great way to give! They have a list of ways to donate on their website.
