Daily Bread Donating $80,000 in Food to Shelters

'Tis the season for giving, and that is what the Daily Bread food storage company is doing for four Utah-based organizations that help those that are hungry, homeless or suffering. Tomorrow, December 20, Daily Bread has rented a truck where a few of their employees will distribute $80,000 worth of food.

The Daily Bread “Santa sleigh” truck will be stopping at Salt Lake Community Action Program’s warehouse (404 West, 6100 South) in Murray to unload $20,000 worth of food. This organization operates six locations to feed the hungry.

 “I was in tears when we got the call that we would be getting that large of a donation of food,” said Cathy Hoskins, Executive Director of Salt Lake Community Action Program, according to a press release from Daily Bread. “This generous donation from Daily Bread will literally help hundreds, if not thousands of people for a lengthy period of time. We could not be more grateful. We have seen such an increase this year in the amount of people that are homeless and hungry, so this will help our organization out a lot.”

The second stop will be the Family Promise of Salt Lake (814 West, 800 South). This organization helps many families get back on their feet. 

Stop number three will be at the YWCA, which has the Women in Jeopardy Shelter Program (322 East, 300 South). This organization is housing 300 women and kids a night on average. 

Last stop is The Road Home (210 South Rio Grande St.), which assists homeless individuals and families.

“We could not be more pleased to be able to give these Utah charities and organizations a lot of our product to be able to serve and give to those who need it most”, says Sarah Barnes, Daily Bread, Vice President of Marketing. “Personally, I look forward to riding along on the Daily Bread “Santa sleigh” truck tomorrow and being a part of the experience. Knowing we can help these organizations that do so much good for the people in these Utah communities means the world to me and everyone in our company.”

Daily Bread is a Utah-based company that provides 25-year, freeze-dried food storage at
