General Assistance

Meals On Wheels operates in virtually every community in America. Volunteers deliver hot meals to homebound seniors. There is no fee for the delivery and usually a small suggested donation for the meal. Utah, Wasatch, and Summit County applications can be found here. For meal delivery in a different county in Utah, please click here.

SNAP (food stamps) can be applied for through the Utah Department of Workforce Services here.

WIC (Women, Infant, Children Supplemental Nutrition Program) may also be able to help with food assistance if there is a pregnant woman or a child five years old or younger in your home. Go here to apply.
