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.
Volunteers will be notifying the recently unemployed and those struggling with food insecurity with details about picking up the food on June 24. 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 30,000 Utah residents in the Navajo Nation, Logan, West Salt Lake, Vernal, Provo, Ogden, Kanab, Castle Dale, Orem, Layton, Grantsville, Oakley, Duchesne, Panguitch and smaller community pantries throughout the Wasatch Front.
