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

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.
