Care and Share

The Care and Share food bank in Kanab, Orderville & Big Water distribute food on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month from 2-6 pm. Our Pantries are client choice.

The Kane County Care & Share program is the equivalent of a Food Bank. It is open on the first and third Thursday of each month and is set up like a grocery store pantry. Families and/or individuals who pass the eligibility requirements can pick up client choice food from the pantry to help subsidize their groceries.

Eligibility: To determine eligibility for the Care & Share food program, you must qualify for TEFAP commodities based on 1) total family income at or below 185% of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines* or 2) participation in SNAP, Medicaid, Free or Reduced Price Meals or Head Start. An individual or family must fill out a self declaration form.

[*Income requirements are federally based and are adjusted yearly.]
