Hurricane Valley Food Pantry

hurricane-pantry-logo

With the closing of Dixie Care and Share, Five County Association of Government assumed operations of the Hurricane Valley Food Pantry in 2016. The pantry supports families facing food insecurity in the Hurricane Valley and the eastern-portion of Washington County. The phone number, location, staff, and hours of operation remain the same as before.

This pantry is a joint effort of Five County Community Action, the City of Hurricane, the Utah Food Bank, and the Hurricane Valley Community.

The purpose of emergency food boxes is to prevent food insecurity for low – moderate income households. Case management and information about other community resources is also available (especially referrals to Utah Department of Workforce Services for employment, job training, and access to other resources which promote stability and help families work towards self-sufficiency.)

Donations of diapers, clothes, hygiene kits,  non-perishable food, or monetary contributions can be brought to the pantry during business hours. Please make any checks out to “Hurricane Valley Food Pantry”. All donations are tax-deductible.  Donations may also be given directly to the Utah Food Bank who provides approximately 90% of food dispersed at the Hurricane Food Pantry.

The pantry also welcomes donations of time. Please call the pantry during hours of operations to learn about current volunteer needs. The pantry would also like to form a community council to provide input on operations as well. Please contact Clint Cottam (ccottam@fivecounty.utah.gov) if you would like to be involved in the pantry council.

Please note that a family should only receive one food box per household a month. If a household is receiving a food box at Switchpoint Community Resource Center or other community partners, that household should not receive a second food box from the Hurricane Valley Pantry in the same month.

What to bring:

Picture ID and household income verification (last thirty days of pay-stubs, W2s, most recent tax return, SSDI/SSI benefit letters, Department of Workforce Services benefit letters for SNAP or Medicaid).

A household includes any individual or group of individuals who are living together as one economic unit. The income of each individual in the household who is 18 years old or older must be included in determining income eligibility. In determining whether an individual is part of a household, the eligible entity may consider factors such as whether the individual pays for his/her own food and occupancy.

Please note that no household will be turned away for emergency food on the first visit. However, ID and income verification will be required for future visits.Utah Food Bank
