HUNGER FIGHT, Inc. announced today that it recently worked with sponsors and volunteers in Salt Lake City to pack over one million meals to help those at risk for hunger. The event, a multi-organization partnership among local organizations, foundations and faith partners, was held during the Silicon Slopes Tech Summit.
Six thousand (6,000) plus volunteers, working a minimum of two hours shifts over the course of two days, packed 1,058,400 meals. All of the meals were donated to the Utah Food Bank and will help feed children and families in the Greater Utah community.
“We are very grateful and honored to have been chosen to participate in the Silicon Slopes Tech Summit as their charity partner,” said Sherri Porter, Founder and Executive Director of Hunger Fight. “To be recognized for the work that we do in the hunger sector in our community and beyond inspires us to continue our mission. Collaborating with like-minded organizations makes a powerful impact on what can be accomplished and this event was a perfect example of how working together can make a tremendous difference in a local community for those who need help.”
