Utah Food Drive: Donate Non-Perishable Items to Your Local Fresh Market
giving back • my world • bettering communities • tips for giving back
—Growing up, my mom did a terrific job of ensuring we ate dinner
together as a family every night. Monday through Thursday nights, we had simple meals. Fridays was always pizza. Saturdays were simple. And Sundays were nothing short of a feast.
We created lots of family memories in our home, especially at mealtime.
So, I was thrilled when Libby's reached out and asked for my participation in their Get Back to the Table
Libby’s believes the table is the heart of the home. Unfortunately, many families are struggling to put food on the table. To help families around the US, Libby’s is partnering with local Habitat for Humanity
chapters to give families a place to enjoy a meal together and everything they need to make it happen.
What's awesome is that Habitat for Humanity Salt Lake City will complete 3 new/refurbished homes for less fortunate families this year.
To help these families get back to the table, Libby’s will provide each of the families that move into these homes with:
- A pantry stocked with Libby’s products to make simple, easy meals for the family
- A dining table for 6 to have a place to enjoy a meal together
- Place settings for at least 6 family members
