For more than 15 years, BYU has sponsored the largest food drive in Utah County. BYU is once again teaming up with UVU and Community Action Services & Food Bank to collect food and monetary donations for those living in poverty in our community. Get involved and help these families have a better future!

Throughout November, drop off non-perishable food in bins across campus or at your local Deseret First Credit Union. You can also donate money at the BYU Store, Cougareat, and Creameries. In addition, various events will be happening across campus.  Check out the calendar and event descriptions below.

Online donations may also be made through the donation link below. Proceeds go to Community Action Services, who can utilize their leveraging power to translate every dollar donated into 3 meals or 15 pounds of food.
