This Holiday season, the Community Health (CHS) Division of
the Salt Lake County Health Department got together at the Viridian Event Center & Library for a service project to
create holiday sculptures out of canned food. The CHS Division has already
donated 500 pounds of food to the Utah Food Bank and the canned food from the
sculptures will be donated on December 19, 2017 to help families in need.
America’s 2014 Hunger in
America study found that “79% of clients purchase inexpensive and unhealthy
foods just to make ends meet”. To try to help feed Salt Lake County with
healthier options, all the food donated to the Utah Food Bank by the CHS
Division was apart of the Suggested Healthy Donation List.
If you would like to
help families in need receive the nutrition they need, please donate a food
that fits the suggestions listed above.
We hope your Holidays are filled with joy, family, friends,
good food and lots of giving!
