Heber City–Community Action Services and Food Bank has opened a new school pantry at Wasatch High to serve junior high and high school students facing food insecurity. Approximately 1 in 6 students struggle with hunger issues in Wasatch County. The pantry is located at 800 South 200 East in the old middle school just west of Wasatch High School.

Community Action Services and Food Bank, along with 20 student leaders and volunteers, recently unloaded 4,000 pounds of food to provide the initial pantry stock in preparation for opening with the new school year. Administrators will set pantry hours based on need. Officials estimate the new pantry will initially help 20-30 children per week, based on experience with other school pantries. Studies show that having consistent access to enough food for a healthy, active life will enhance educational outcomes and improve student experience.
