Meals

The Food & Care Coalition serves nutritionally well balanced meals seven days a week to Utah County's homeless, mentally ill and learning disabled, fixed income families, and families affected by tragedy. In 2014, community members contributed canned goods, garden produce, sack lunches, casseroles, desserts, food from catered events, cash and redeemable grocery store gift certificates, paving the way for the program to serve 111,749 meals to our fellow community members.

This remarkable accomplishment would not be possible unless it had vested community interest. Area businesses, church groups, civic groups, scouts, individuals and families donate nearly 15,000 volunteer hours each year. In addition to preparation, serving, and cleanup duties, volunteers often recruit food donors and make frequent donation pickups.

Volunteer opportunities are available almost every day in a given year, but must be booked in advance. For logistical purposes, anyone wanting to get involved should first schedule with our volunteer coordinator at 801-373-1825 or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots.
