    Utahns Against Hunger joins with other social justice organizations to stand with Black, Indigenous and People of Color in their pursuit of justice and their fight to dismantle racism. We believe that we all have the right to feel safe in our homes, parks and streets. The color of one’s skin should not make anyone a target for violence. Recent incidents of racism have shown that we still have a lot of work to do make the United States a place where Black, Indigenous and People of Color are safe from the fear of violence and brutality. We believe that we must work with our community leaders and take guidance from them on how best to achieve that goal. As an organization, we recognize there is more work to do to address the kind of inequality that leads communities of color to experience higher incidences of poverty, food insecurity and hunger. For 40 years Utahns Against Hunger has been working to increase access to food through advocacy, outreach and education, and we recognize that our work must be more deliberate in addressing the inequities in the food system. As a board, and staff we will look to community leaders for guidance and leadership as we confront these problems. As we all navigate these turbulent waters, we extend our love, share your rage and hope to come through this together to a more just and equitable world for all.Utahns Against Hunger Board:Kevin Mass - Board ChairAfton JanuaryTracy PriceKristie Thorp Utahns Against Hunger Staff:Gina Cornia - Executive DirectorAlex Cragun - Food Security AdvocateNeil Rickard - Child Nutrition Advocate

    In an effort to understand how emergency food pantries are being impacted by the economic fallout from the COVID 19 pandemic Utahns Against Hunger conducted an informal survey of 120 emergency food pantries statewide. The survey was conducted between April 1-14, 2020. The results provide some insight about the challenges being faced by pantries, the changes to their food distribution structures and identify critical needs they will need in order to continue to provide food for their communities.
