Mark Miller Subaru hosts food collection drive to support the Utah Food Bank
As part of the Subaru and Feeding America partnership that is donating 100 million meals to food banks across the country, Mark Miller Subaru will donate 450,000 meals to the Utah Food Bank and host a food collection drive.
February 4, 2021 – Salt Lake City, UT – As the effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to hit our communities, Mark Miller Subaru is donating over 450,000 meals to the Utah Food Bank and is hosting a food collection drive to engage the public in helping Utahns in need.
During the month of February, the public can drop off non-perishable food items at either of the Mark Miller Subaru Midtown (3535 S State Street) or South Towne (10920 S State St) locations to support the Utah Food Bank and their efforts to fight hunger. To encourage donations, individuals who make food donations will be entered into a drawing to win two (2) 2021 season passes to Lagoon Amusement Park.
Subaru of America and Feeding America are partnering once again to provide 100 million meals* to people hit hardest by the crisis. The continued partnership with the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization and the Subaru retailer network will help families and individuals across the country that are still in need during these uncertain times.
As Utah’s only member of Feeding America’s nationwide network of more than 200 food banks, Utah Food Bank will receive over 450,000 donated meals on behalf of Mark Miller Subaru, in additional to the food collected from the public during the month-long food collection drive. These meals will be dispersed throughout Utah to help fight hunger in our state.
Since the pandemic, the Utah Food Bank has experienced an unprecedented demand for their services both for adults and children. Each day 511,000 Utahns, which is 1 in 6 individuals, are at risk of missing a meal. Even more alarming is that 1 in 5 Utah kids are unsure where their next meal is coming from.
Mark Miller Subaru encourages the public to stand together in fighting hunger in Utah and donate non-perishable food items during the month of February!
* $1 helps provide at least ten meals secured by Feeding America® on behalf of local member food banks.
