The Luisa E. Lema Emergency Food Pantry is one of the busiest food pantries in Utah. We provide emergency food boxes to people in need, as well as baby-care items, gas vouchers, prescription vouchers, 1-day bus passes, and limited emergency funds.

Thanks to your donations and volunteer efforts, we help thousands of people each month.

Please bring your donations during operating hours only.
