How to Help

**Food Donations go to our Pantry at:

        5065 South Jones Court (178 East)  Murray              

Call 801-803-2505 for Appointment to deliver.

              We are not there all the time.

Call for directions as  GPS won't get you there.

Our "Buddy Bag" program lets youth and small groups help with food. 

Silver Mesa Elementary 4th graders completed 125 "Buddy Bags' .

When having your Christmas and holiday parties, ask each guest to bring a few items to fill a bin for donation to KidsEat! People love to donate during the giving season. Lynda Brown has done this for many years with her neighborhood ladies' group. Instead of exchanging a gift, each lady brings a sack full of food. If you are a business, make a Christmas Tree of the collected food and then donate it to KidsEat! Program.

HOLIDAY FOOD GIFTING PARTIES

       Families work together to gather food.  We had one generous family whose goal was to gather enough food for 100

       backpacks!  They delivered them directly to the Murray Club. They did a phenomenal job and earned the satisfaction of

       helping others at the same time.

Lion's, Kiwanis, Rotary, Exchange Club, Chambers of Commerce, Sororities, UWABO,   Bunko and Bingo Clubs and everyone else !  Have your members bring their donation to your meeting for donation. 

COMMUNITY & SOCIAL GROUPS

Men's and Women's Church organizations are the perfect groups to sponsor a food drive such as  Sororities, Church Women's Organizations ie: Relief Society, Eastern Star, Mutual Girls,  Job's Daughters, Demolay, Priesthoods, etc.

CHURCH GROUPS - CHARITY GIFTING
TEAM WORK IN ACTION

There are many ways to have a successful Food Gifting for  KidsEat!   We are happy to  provide material support, for example,  banners, posters  &  bins  and barrels.

Your food donation

means everything

The Hofmann family  (Wayne, Tina, Lori, Jeff, Julie, Derek & Chelsea)  all worked together to provide us with about $400 worth of food for our  pantry.  We are very grateful to them.

       Neighbors join together to help fight hunger in their own back yard by having a food drive, topped off with a

        neighborhood Bar-B-Q or similar event.

food to the  pantry.

Departments within a company or business can have an inter-departmental challenge. The winning department
gets a reward.  The Utah Department of Corrections is a great example of a successful  “Challenge”.   The winning
Department got a pancake breakfast with the Chief and with Lynda Brown and Bob Dunn,  VP,  B&G Club of
Greater  Salt Lake.     Murray City Employees did a similar drive as well to help feed our kids !
