DONATE TO THE FOOD BANK THROUGH SMITH’S PROGRAM


Virtual Meal-In-a-Bag Feeds Families in Need

Smith’s Food & Drug shoppers can help alleviate hunger in their community through the 5th Annual Smith’s Gift of Giving Program.
Smith’s checkers will be taking donation orders for a $7.00 meal-in-a-bag or a $10 ham or turkey from November 8 through December 26. The food is then delivered by caseload to the Utah Food Bank for distribution to individuals and families in need.
A Gift of Giving meal includes 13 nutritious food items like tuna, rice, mixed vegetables, peaches, macaroni and cheese, red beans, and peanut butter and jelly packaged at cost by Smith’s to assure the highest value of the donation.
In 2008, Smith’s customers in Utah provided 2,789 turkeys & hams and 2,745 staple items, which equaled 46,352 meals for hungry people.
"Smith's holiday food drive allows their customers to directly help people in their own community,” said Jim Pugh, executive director of the Utah Food Bank Services. “These most basic and nutritious food items are so crucial to individuals and families who are depending on the Food Bank in these distressful economic times. We are truly grateful to Smith's and their customers for their support.”
