By Kristin Forbis, May 20, 2020
It has been uplifting to hear the stories of how people around the world have been helping at this time. We do not need to look far, however, as the Uintah Basin Association of Governments Food Pantries have highlighted some people and groups that have been helping in the Basin already this month. Altamont Seminary donated 1,332 pounds of food to the Duchesne Food Pantry, Realty One gave 550 pound of food to Ashley Valley Food Pantry, and Ovintiv made a generous donation of $5000 dollars. If you are also looking to help here is a list of the top 5 needed items: 1. Protein items, especially canned meats like fish and chicken, chili and stew, 2. Canned soups, 3. Cooking oil, 4. Boxed meals such as Hamburger Helper, and 5. Canned fruit, especially pineapple and mandarin oranges.
