Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Susan Wilson

SPANISH FORK – Local food pantry, Tabitha’s Way, thanks local stores and restaurants for donating over 490,000 pounds of food in 2017. Stores donating to the south county Tabitha’s Way pantry include: Spanish Fork and Payson Walmart, Neighborhood Market, Provo and Springville Smith’s, Costco, Fresh Market, Payson and Springville Pizza Hut, Olive Garden, Kneaders, Jimmy John’s, Chick-fil-A, Good Earth, and the Bishop’s Storehouse.

Tabitha’s Way Co-founder, Wendy Osborne said, “Without the donations from these amazing stores and restaurants we wouldn’t have been able to provide over 4 million meals to 35,000 children and 36,000 seniors, veterans and food insecure individuals in 2017. We are so thankful for their commitment to fighting hunger in our community”

One in 5 children is food insecure. Over 78,000 people in Utah county live at or below the Federal Poverty line. Tabitha’s Way works to help individuals and families in Utah County through their 2 pantry locations – North county in American Fork and South County in Spanish Fork. Individuals and families struggling with food insecurity can go into either of these 2 locations and receive needed help.

This is from a Tabitha’s Way patron, “I’m 96 years old and I used to grow all my food. I served my country and am a retired veteran. I am supposed to drink these special drinks to make sure I get enough food, but I can’t afford them. Tabitha’s saves the drinks for me and gives me the food that I need.  I’m too old to grow my food now.”

For anyone looking for a way to give to Tabitha’s Way to help in their mission, you can volunteer in either of their 2 pantries, donate money, or host a food drive. You can also drop off clothing or household items at any of our 150 bin locations or bring them to Tabitha’s Way.
