In keeping with previous ‘Miracle Projects’, those receiving food will stay in vehicles and have food placed inside. The event will provide direct food donations to approximately 500 families in Enoch & Cedar City and will take place in the parking lot of a church building for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The donations will include beef, pork, milk, cheese, eggs, sweet corn, and other seasonal produce.
- Enoch. Held at Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (451 East Midvalley Rd. in Enoch), 4:30-6:30 p.m. or until supplies last.
Farmers Feeding Utah is a campaign of the Miracle of Agriculture Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization that was set up as the charitable arm of the Utah Farm Bureau Federation. Additional logistical and in-kind support has come from invaluable partners, including Utah State University (USU) and its Hunger Solutions Institute & Create Better Health program, the Utah Department of Agriculture & Food (UDAF), The Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-day Saints, and Farm Bureau Financial Services.
Additional donations and contributions for the project in Iron County have been made from Smithfield Foods, Intermountain Farmers Association (IFA), Merril Financial, and Cal-Maine Foods of Delta, and DairyWest.
Volunteers will notify those struggling with food insecurity with details about picking up the food on the 18th. Donations to the ‘Miracle of Agriculture Foundation’ for the Farmers Feeding Utah project are used to purchase, process, and deliver food to families in need, giving both Utah families and farmers a hand up.
To date, the Farmers Feeding Utah campaign has provided approximately 1.5 million pounds of food, with a retail value of more than $3.4 Million to more than 35,000 Utah residents in the Navajo Nation, Logan, West Salt Lake, Vernal, Provo, Ogden, Kanab, Castle Dale, Orem, Layton, Grantsville, Oakley, Duchesne, Panguitch Moab, Price, West Valley, and smaller community pantries throughout the Wasatch Front.
