Community Action Services & Food Bank
is committed to fostering self-reliance in individuals,
families, and communities in Summit County
by providing Food...& More!
We envision vibrant, sustainable communities where each resident has:
Safe & affordable housing;
Healthy & life-sustaining food;
Adequate economic opportunities; and
People in their life they can count on.
For many of our neighbors experiencing homelessness or at risk for homelessness, our vision feels impossible.
High inflation and high housing costs have hit Utah families hard--low-income families have been especially impacted. Already living on the edge of their budgets, some are now having to choose between paying their rent and buying groceries, diapers, or medications. Others' budgets are so broken, that they have already lost their housing.
So far in 2023, we've served 2x's as many people in CASFB's food pantries in Summit County than we did during all of last year.
4,363 People Served vs 2,216 People Served

Food assistance helps families stretch their budgets. The dollars they would have spent on food can be spent on rent or other basic needs. CASFB operates 2 food pantries that support rural Summit County--one in Oakley and one in Coalville, as well as distributes food to community partners in Summit County, including Park City.
