The Ashley Valley Food Pantry provides food to those who would otherwise go without. Our mission is to alleviate hunger in Daggett, Duchesne, and Uintah Counties.
Our clients range in age from the very young, to the elderly. It is estimated that 1 in 7 kids are unsure where their next meal is coming from. Nearly 85% of our clients are employed, but are considered working class poor, while the remaining individuals are disabled or on a fixed income. Unfortunately their employment is not enough to sustain their needs, especially food and at times shelter.
Each household is given one food box a month. They are also allowed two emergency boxes a year (within 12 months). If available, holiday boxes many be supplied at Thanksgiving and/or Christmas.
We appreciate any kind of donation, especially healthy fresh food!

We can make accommodations to meet a gardener if they cannot donate during our regular operating hours.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
