Food Bank Drive Up Free Services

Utah Food Bank’s Mobile Pantries provide support to Utahns living in areas that are classified as food deserts or are inaccessible or underserved by traditional food pantries. Many Utahns live in areas classified as food deserts, areas where residents don’t have healthy, affordable food stores near them and lack sufficient transportation to get to the nearest stores. Often, the few food resources available often lack nutrition (such as fast-food restaurants) or are over-priced and under-nutritious (such as convenience stores). This service is available to all in the community free of charge. Click HERE for update to date locations/times. Normal drive up services are as follows:

First Thursday of the month:  8:30am – 10:00am or while supplies last, 121 Tabernacle St, St. George, UT 84770
