History

Crossroads’ emergency food pantry was named after longtime staff member Luisa Elena Lema, who worked in the pantry for 20 years until her death on October 3, 1999.

Luisa-Lema

Luisa was a compassionate soul who was fiercely dedicated to meeting the needs of low-income Utahns. A native of Lima, Peru, where she worked as a teacher, she became a U.S. citizen in 1975.

Luisa was known for her tireless commitment, kindness to children, and the time she took to converse with people who came to her for help with food.

Once, when pressed to explain the complexities of Crossroads’ mission, Luisa replied simply, “We help poor people.”

No one ever said it better and did it so well.

The Board of Directors of Crossroads Urban Center was honored to dedicate the pantry facility as the Luisa E. Lema Emergency Food Pantry at Crossroads Urban Center, on October 3, 2000.
