USANA® Kids Eat

Hunger is a real problem in Utah.
More than 56,000 children along the Wasatch Front wonder if they will have food to eat today. The problem is worse on weekends and extended breaks from school. A lot of work is being done to address the hunger in our backyards, but we can do so much more. USANA® Kids Eat currently serves 6,000 local kids through our weekend bag program.

Established in 2019, the USANA® Foundation, seeing a local need, acquired KidsEat!Utah to form USANA® Kids Eat. Providing backpacks filled with food for at-risk youth to schools and organizations in the Wasatch Front, the Foundation was able to provide the best global reach, with a strong local impact.
We provide secure and safe food sources to at-risk children, raise public awareness of this important issue, and generate resources and revenue through local campaigns and volunteer opportunities. We work to involve and connect the community, and create a network of support for our local kids. Together, we can address hunger in Utah. Because no child should ever go hungry.

Our Impact

Each week, USANA® Kids Eat delivers over 9,100 meals to local, at-risk youth.
