About this event

To show our gratitude, Blue Star Families of Utah, Feed the Children, the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes, and Discover have joined forces to host a special drive-through food and hygiene kit distribution event just for you and your family.

Active-duty, Guard, and Reserve military, Veterans, and their families serving right here in Utah are invited to stop by and receive* a box containing roughly one week’s worth of food, hygiene, and household items (approximately a $200 value). Strict limit of one set of items per household only.

Families will also receive additional gifts…

  • A Smith’s Grocery gift card to help supplement their Thanksgiving Meal with fresh ingredients, thanks to our partners at Discover.
  • And... other surprises provided by Blue Star Families

It is important to note that these items will likely not constitute a full Thanksgiving meal and are only intended to help supplement, not replace.

Additional details, including a map of the area for pickup, will be provided in the registration confirmation email.

This event is also open to all caregivers and Gold Star families. If you're a Veteran caregiver, you may register to pick up a box on behalf of your Veteran. Additional details will be provided in the registration confirmation email.

Please Note:

  • *This is a drive-through food distribution event where advanced registration is required due to a limited supply of resources. Be one of the first 400 registrants to participate!
  • Please note that the food items we receive can vary, please do not make changes to your grocery budget until you receive the items and see what is included.
  • Due to the limited number of boxes we can distribute, this event is limited to one per family/household only. Duplicate registrations will be removed.
  • The occurrence of this event at the North Salt Lake Armory does not constitute nor imply endorsement by the State of Utah or the Department of Defense.
