The St. George UT Food Bank will be hosting their first ever 5K race in St. George UT in September. The race will be called “H.A.M. It Up Against Hunger Race” and will be part of Utah’s statewide efforts to celebrate national Hunger Action Month.
The St. George UT Food Bank hopes to increase awareness about the ongoing hunger issue around the state through the race.

Currently, there are over 36,000 Southern Utah residents who don’t know where their next meal will come from, 15,000 of those will be children. Therefore, the importance of the Utah Food Bank Southern Distribution Center is at the forefront of the long time fight against hunger.
