The Uintah Basin Association of Governments currently operates four food pantries in the Tri-County area. The Tri-County Food Pantries are: Westside Food Pantry, Duchesne County Food Pantry, Ashley Valley Food Pantry, and the Flaming Gorge County Food Pantry. Our clients range in age from the very young to the elderly. Nearly 85% of our clients are employed, but are considered working class poor, while the remaining individuals are disabled or on a fixed income. Unfortunately their employment is not enough to sustain their needs, especially food.          


We receive food and non-food donations from a variety of sources. These sources include, but are not limited to the following: Utah Food Bank Services, the United Way, United States Department of Agriculture, religious organizations, scouting groups, letter carrier food drives, local retailers, grocery and convenience stores, civic organization, schools, local gardeners, and generous members of the community.


The Uintah Basin Food Pantries allow a client to receive one food box a month. You are also allowed two emergency boxes a year (within 12 months). If available, holiday boxes many be supplied at Thanksgiving and/or Christmas. In order to set up a file, you must supply valid picture identification for all adult members living the household, social security cards or birth certificates for everyone living in the household, and proof of current income including; child support, social security, dividends etc…..any money your receive during the month must be reported.


Things to remember:

  • When coming in to pick up your box please bring a friend or family members to help you carry items to your car, if you are unable to do it yourself.

  • The Food Pantries are funded by state and federal funds, if any of the information in your file is falsified you could be PROSECUTED.

  • Client applications are updated annually.
