On Saturday, March 9, USANA Kids Eat will bring in hundreds of new volunteers from the local community to pack 2,000 bags of food items for children and their families in need around the state. Along with packing the bags, USANA Kids Eat will use the opportunity to secure new sponsors in order for six Utah schools to receive the Kids Eat food bags during the next school year.  

“Programs like USANA Kids Eat are vital to helping schoolchildren who are at risk of going hungry,” said Michelle Benedict, USANA Foundation global programs director. “This is why we are looking to raise awareness about the need for new sponsors to ensure children and their families have food to eat when away from school.”

As Benedict explains, school sponsorship is key to expanding the USANA Kids Eat program. “If we find school sponsors, we have more than 300 additional kids from six local schools who could receive our weekend support,” she said. “We are ready to go with volunteers to pack the bags—now we just need the funding to provide food for those bags.”

Saturday’s volunteers will be given opportunities to donate and adopt schools while also getting a behind-the-scenes look at the facility to learn about USANA’s commitment to quality, innovation and community. Packing food bags, donating and adopting schools in need of support will bring the Utah community closer together to make a direct, positive impact on families around the state.

“I am so grateful for all these new volunteers coming out to help pack and make our community a better place,” said Benedict. “To take time out of your Saturday to help others speaks volumes to the charitable nature of Utah.”
