Utah Food Bank Dedicates Southern Branch Building
St. George - UTAH FOOD BANK dedicated its Southern Utah Branch building at 4416 S. River Road in St. George.
“The communities in Southern Utah bring so much value to our state’s culture, economy and spirit of giving,” says Linda Trujillo, Utah Food Bank’s southern branch manager. “As a statewide organization, Utah Food Bank is proud to work hand-in-hand with our partner agencies in the seven Southern Utah counties to help further strengthen their efforts to fight hunger.”
Utah Food Bank started its efforts to establish a southern branch a year ago. The goal of this year-long effort was to work with the communities and generate stronger relationships with partner agencies before officially dedicating the southern branch building.
As a result, more than 4.5 million pounds of food and goods have been distributed to local pantries since January 2011. From that total, 1.8 million pounds of fresh product was donated by local grocers and then distributed to participating pantries through Utah Food Bank’s Grocery Rescue program.
“Our partner agencies in Southern Utah have been doing a tremendous job in caring for those in need for years,” says Trujillo. “Our purpose in opening a branch in Southern Utah is not to replace their incredible efforts, but to strengthen them.”
The dedication of the southern branch marks Utah Food Bank’s efforts to fight hunger statewide and will facilitate the collection and distribution of food more efficiently to partner agencies in the southern-most part of the state.
