PTC & Utah Food Bank Partner for Holiday Food Drive

Make a Difference This Holiday Season

PTC has partnered with Utah Food Bank to bring food to those who may be in need this holiday season. Before, during, or after performances of A Christmas Story, The Musical, audiences have the chance to donate canned or prepackaged food items to Utah Food Bank—right in the Pioneer Memorial Theatre Lobby. (The building opens one hour before showtime.)

Utah Food Bank has been fighting statewide hunger for over 118 years. They have stayed true to their objective of serving those in need throughout the state of Utah. They work tirelessly with community partners and volunteers to continue making an impact. Learn more about Utah Food Bank’s vital mission here.
