Davinci Gives Back: April Charity – Utah Food Bank
‘For over 116 years, Utah Food Bank has stayed true to our objective of serving those in need throughout our state. We work tirelessly with community partners and volunteers to continue making an impact and fulfilling our mission of Fighting Hunger Statewide.
Last year, Utah Food Bank distributed 38 million meals via a statewide network of 182 partner agencies located in all 29 counties. In addition to being one of only a handful of food banks that distributes food free-of-charge to partner agencies, we also offer several direct service programs to help the most vulnerable populations in our state — children and seniors. By combining these direct service programs with our emergency food assistance services, we can truly impact the lives of Utahns who live in a world of food insecurity.
As Utah’s only member of Feeding America’s nationwide network of more than 200 food banks, we are proud to be a part of the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization.
With children at home and countless adults out of work, Utah Food Bank is seeing the need for assistance significantly increase at all program and partner agency sites.
Mobile Pantries have proven to be a very efficient and effective tool in responding to the sharp increase in need across the state. We have increased our deliveries by 44% and have seen a 161% increase in households served in March compared to March of last year. We will continue to expand distribution through this program further in the coming weeks and months. In fact, at the end of April we did an emergency food distribution at the Maverik Center serving more than 5,000 families, the largest distribution we have ever done.’
In April 2020, Davinci donated money to Utah Food Bank to help aid in providing meals to fight hunger. We are proud of their work and dedication to the Utah community and their mission to continuously serve those less fortunate!
