Individual & Family Donations
STEP ONE : Gather or purchase your food donation. Currently, Tabitha’s Way needs almost all types of shelf-stable foods.
Make sure the items are unopened, have the nutritional label, and are in good condition. Please no items older than 2 years from the expiration date. We also accept fresh produce from your garden and eggs. Please wash them prior to bringing them to the pantry. Our goal is to provide foods with the highest possible nutritional value.
STEP TWO : Deliver your donation to the designated donation site at Tabitha’s Way at : 920 East State Road, Suite K, American Fork, UT.
We have created a Self-Serve Donation Station where the donations can be dropped off safely. Please sort your donation into the wire baskets, separating the hard (cans) and the soft (paper, plastic, etc.) and the glass. Shelf-stable food items will be quarantined for 3 days to ensure no transmissions.

Organizational or Neighborhood Food Drives
General Information : For the first 6 months of 2020, out of an abundance of caution, food pantries like Tabitha’s Way were asked not to do food drives. Traditional food drives often meant having groups of people gather together to do the food drive. We now offer tips on how to do a safe food drive with your organization or neighborhood. Please follow the steps below to host an organizational or neighborhood food drive:
STEP ONE: CLICK HERE TO REGISTER YOUR FOOD DRIVE. Tips on how to do a safe food drive can be found in our registration form.
STEP TWO : Read our food drive packet that contains tips on how to hold a food drive during the pandemic, and important information on how to successfully promote a food drive along with instructions on how to schedule the delivery of your donations.
Host a Virtual Fundraiser
Help us raise funds for our pantry feeding program. Remember that every $1.00 gathered is approximately 5 meals for neighbors in need. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
