More people than you might think go hungry here
Food insecurity affects Summit County residents more than we would like to think. In fact, 13% of
students in Park City School District and nearly 17% of students in rural Summit County qualify for free and reduced lunch programs. What is being done to help these hardworking families and their children?
Vail Resorts Epic Promise has been a valued, longtime supporter of the Christian Center of Park City’s food pantries. Support from this annual grant helps our pantries serve roughly 1,500 families in our Park City pantry each month! Those who are raising a family on a shoestring budget are so appreciative of the opportunity to receive free, nutritious groceries.
Vail Resorts EpicPromise not only supports our food pantry through philanthropic giving, but they are also community partners for our annual Hike for Hunger event! This year Hike for Hunger will be held at Park City Mountain Resort’s Legacy Lodge. Hike for Hunger raises support for our food assistance programs in Summit and Wasatch Counties and is a great way to help support local families while enjoying a day of hiking, activities, live music, and a great meal.
We’d like to publicly thank Park City Mountain and Vail Resorts EpicPromise for their continued support of the fight against hunger in our community. Supporting the fight against hunger is not only an act of kindness, but it also addresses health disparities and contributes to greater equity and diversity in our community.
If you would like to be a part of fighting hunger and addressing food insecurity in Summit County and beyond, join us Saturday, Sept. 16, at Park City Mountain Resort for Hike for Hunger! Tickets are available at ccofpc.org.
