Utah Crisis Food Response

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.
