Farmers Feeding Utah
“Farmers and ranchers are giving people. We love to feed people. That’s who we are. That’s our mission.”
– Ron Gibson, Board of Directors
In both the good and hard times, Utah farmers have been passionate about feeding people. While the pandemic-born supply chain issues that inspired us to connect Utahns in need with safe and locally-grown food have somewhat alleviated, the fact remains: thousands of hungry Utahns still need help. Rather than calling it a day, our donors, farmers and volunteers remain dedicated to alleviating hunger. We’re encouraging all Utahns to help grow a miracle by donating to the Farmers Feeding Utah program, so we can keep our state’s farm and ranch families producing the local food we all need, and also feed the growing number of families who are food insecure.
Here’s How it works:
Step 1: You donate
Step 2: We use your donations to give a local farm or ranch family a hand up by purchasing their product.
Step 3: We get the product processed so it can be delivered to the families in need.
Step 4: We partner with charitable institutions to distribute the food where it is needed most.
To date, the Farmers Feeding Utah program has fed over 30,000 Utah families with over 1.5 million pounds of food purchased from our local farmers and ranchers.
This program was launched in partnership with Utah State University’s Hunger Solutions Institute, Cogburn Wire Company, the Utah Department of Agriculture & Food (UDAF) and most importantly: You! Please consider donating today!
