For some Utah kids, the only time they have nutritious meals is at school.

So on the weekends, they're at risk of missing one or more healthy meals.

Luckily, USANA Kids Eat, a non-profit organization, works every week to distribute more than 800 backpacks of food to help kids make it to Monday with food.

Seven meals are in each backpack, which means up to 5,600 meals are provided each week.

More than 65 Wasatch Front schools and organizations are supported by USANA Kids Eat.

USANA Health Sciences also teamed up with USANA Kids Eat and HealthCorps to launch the first Teacher Relief Program.

1,500 bags were delivered to teachers in 30 schools to say thank you for their work on the front lines of the pandemic.

Along with food, they've purchased stress balls, resistance bands, candles and items that will help teachers cope with the pressures they're facing during the pandemic.
