Community Action Services and Food Bank is a nonprofit organization in Provo, Utah, that provides a two-step process to solving poverty: first, to provide the resources to help stabilize the person’s crisis, and then to help them rebuild their life. Since 1967, our agency has helped stabilize the crises in the lives of people in need by meeting their basic critical needs (such as food and housing) while providing them with the long-term solutions needed to rebuild their financial and social self-sufficiency, enabling them to break out of poverty.
Community Action Services and Food Bank is the second largest food bank in Utah. Last year, nearly 5 million pounds of food was collected and distributed by the food bank to our partner agencies throughout Utah, Wasatch, and Summit counties.
As a food bank, we rely on the generous contributions of our community to help supply our clients and partner agencies with food needed to fight hunger.
Through our grocery rescue program, in partnership with many local grocery stores, we are able to provide many nutritious items such as bread, fresh fruit vegetables, meats, eggs, and dairy products.
