Com­mu­nity Ac­tion Ser­vices and Food Bank is part­ner­ing with Feed the Chil­dren and STAR Tour­ing & Rid­ing to hold a statewide food dis­tri­bu­tion event on Wednes­day, July 18.

In an­tic­i­pa­tion of this event, Com­mu­nity Ac­tion Ser­vices is seek­ing the names of hun­dreds of low-in­come fam­i­lies who could po­ten­tially ben­e­fit from this event.

STAR Tour­ing & Rid­ing mem­bers will de­liver up to 80,000 pounds of food to low-in­come fam­i­lies liv­ing here in Utah. Com­mu­nity Ac­tion Ser­vices and Food Bank is seek­ing out 400 fam­i­lies who have an in­come of less than 150 per­cent of the Fed­eral Poverty Level to par­tic­i­pate.

Vouch­ers good for food and house­hold items will be dis­trib­uted a week be­fore the July 18 event.

Fam­i­lies will bring the vouch­ers to the event to claim their boxes. The value of items will be ap­prox­i­mately $450 per fam­ily

"Hunger is a se­ri­ous prob­lem in our com­mu­nity, with 13 per­cent of our friends and neigh­bors ex­pe­ri­enc­ing food in­se­cu­rity, in­clud­ing more than 29,000 chil­dren," said Karen McCand­less, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of Com­mu­nity Ac­tion Ser­vices and Food Bank. "But we can make a dif­fer­ence and end hunger, es­pe­cially with help from groups like STAR Tour­ing & Rid­ing."

The STAR Tour­ing & Rid­ing event will be held 9 a.m.-noon Wednes­day, July 18, at the Lin­don Wal­mart, 585 S. State St., Lin­don. To nom­i­nate a fam­ily, please con­tact Com­mu­nity Ac­tion Ser­vices and Food Bank at (801) 373-8200.
