1 in 8 Utahns are at a risk of missing a meal today – Food Donation @ Diwali Night

We are fortunate that we don’t have hunger and starvation problems in our community. But there are 392K people in Utah who are food insecure. That’s 13% of Utah’s population.

1 out of 6 Utah kids in Utah is unsure where their next meal will come from.

Diwali is a celebration to mark the victory of light over darkness. Let’s contribute towards eliminating hunger-darkness from our society.

We love giving back to our society. To have a small contribution from us to our society, we have organized a food donation drive during our Diwali Night event in association with the Utah Food Bank. We are encouraging you to please bring all the food that you can donate to Utah Food Bank.

Bring food for donation at our Diwali Night 2018.
