Feeding hungry Utah kids through USANA Kids Eat

Posted at 3:07 PM, Feb 05, 2020

One in five Utah children go home to insufficient or no food every day and USANA Kids Eat wants to change that.

56,000 Salt Lake Valley children qualify for free or reduced-price school lunches and 20-25% require weekend food aid and on the weekends these children often go hungry.

At the USANA Kids Eat facility volunteers pack and distribute over 800 backpacks of food every weekend to help kids make it to Monday with food.

7 meals are in each backpack and delivered to 68 schools from Ogden to Herriman which means up to 5600 meals are provided each week.
