Farmers Feeding Utah
Giving Utah Farmers and Families a Hand Up
In both the good and hard times, Utah Farmers have been passionate about feeding people. Utah farmers and families have been particularly impacted by this pandemic. Many important supply chain elements have closed down, leaving farmers unable to sell their Utah-grown products. All of this has been happening as a record breaking number of Utahns have been furloughed or seen their pay cut due to the impacts of coronavirus. Therefore, more families than ever are in need of food resources.
Farmers Feeding Utah, launched by the Utah Farm Bureau (a 501(c)(5) organization), connects Utahns in need with safe and locally-grown food. 100 percent of donations will go to purchasing, processing and distributing locally sourced food to families in need.
“The mission of the Utah Farm Bureau is to inspire all Utah families to connect, succeed, and grow through the ‘Miracle of Agriculture’, and that’s what we’re hoping to do today. We’re encouraging all Utahns to help grow a miracle by donating to the ‘Farmers Feeding Utah’ campaign, 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 in need.”
Ron Gibson, Utah Farm Bureau Federation President
Here’s How it works:
The program was launched in partnership with Utah State University’s Hunger Solutions Institute, other hunger relief organizations, the Utah Department of Agriculture & Food (UDAF)…and most importantly: You. Please consider donating today!
