Our Nutrition Program was founded on the belief that access to healthy food provides the foundation for future success. From healthy meals for pre-schoolers and seniors to culinary training, our focus is on health, education, and self-reliance.
Services & Benefits
Our Nutrition program provides meal and food assistance for households struggling with food insecurity.
In operation since 2010, UCA’s Central Kitchen is a successful social enterprise that now serves more than 720,000 meals each year to Head Start children, after-school programs, charter school students, and child care facilities.
Sauté Training & Catering
Sauté is a 12-week, in-house culinary employment training program offered by Utah Community Action year-round. Sauté students and graduates work with UCA’s Central Kitchen to provide catering services for residents and businesses in our communities.
In partnership with Salt Lake County Aging and Adult Services, UCA provides food services in their Millcreek, Midvale and Draper Senior Center Cafes. Our food is healthy and made fresh daily.
During the Summer Months, UCA provides fresh and nutritious dinners for children under 18 at no cost.

“The Nutrition program has been there when it’s been a couple of days before payday or a couple of days before we get food stamps when we’ve been short because the kids wanted to eat extra or they were out of school a couple of extra days. They’ve been there to get us food to get us through. ”- Crystal
“The services we provide are always important, but especially right now with the pandemic we’re suffering through. Food insecurity has really increased. There are a lot of people who are dealing with power outages and evictions, but you can’t focus on any of that if you’re hungry. Helping people deal with their food security is really job one towards them being able to solve the other problems that are pressing on them.”- Amos
