PROVO — Community Action Services and Food Bank (CASFB) announced today that it will be opening a new outreach office in Payson, Utah. The office space will be provided by Wasatch Mental Health; working WMH, CASFB will extend its case management services to the Payson area.

CASFB works to stabilize families living in poverty by providing food, living assistance and job training, among other services. The case management office is one part of their effort to provide individuals with the tools necessary to pull themselves out of poverty and break the cycle of substandard living.

“Our case managers have helped hundreds of people break the cycle of poverty,” says LoAn Le, CASFB Family Development manager. “We’re grateful to Wasatch Mental Health for granting us this space to continue our work, servicing a larger area than we could before.”

The mobile pantry will begin on Wednesday, May 16, and return every third Wednesday from thereon, 12–3 p.m. All are invited to bring by goods for donation, following the guidelines on the CASFB website.
