Did you know 1 in 6 Utahns are at risk of missing at least one meal per day – not to mention 1 in 5 kids are unsure where their next meal is coming from. Did you know the Utah Food Bank can turn every $1 they receive into $8 worth of food and services? Did you know there’s a way to support this great organisation and have a a great evening too? If you didn’t, you will very soon…
The 12th annual Día de Los Muertos celebration held in the fabulous Rico Brand warehouse is almost here and all proceeds go to support the Utah Food Bank. The day of the dead is a gathering of family and friends to pray for and remember those who have passed away. This is not a day of mourning, but rather a celebration of those who have passed, and the wonderful lives they lived.
This November 1st you have no excuses to be anywhere other than this event as Rico Brand are pulling out all the stops to make for the best event yet. The celebration will include live music, children’s activities, local and Mexican artisans and vendors, cash bars, valet parking, and delicious Rico Brand food. Everything except beverages is included in the cost of admission.
Last year more than 800 people attended and the event raised more than $20,000 for the Utah Food Bank. That equates to over $150,000 of direct food and service to those in need, through the Utah Food Bank’s programs. This year the goal is for 1000+ attendees and to smash all previous fundraising records. And seriously guys, contributing couldn’t be easier.
Attendance costs a measly $15 for adults or $10 for kids. Or alternatively, bring 15 cans of tinned food (10 for kids) and attendance is free. Bring a few extra dollars for the cash bar, and have a great evening in aid of folks far less fortunate.
The event is held on November 1st and runs from 6PM to 11PM.

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with multiple local publications from Visit Salt Lake to Salt Lake Magazine, not least helped to consult on national TV shows.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for the better part of fifteen years. I’m largely fueled by a critical obsession with rice, alliteration and the use of big words I don’t understand. What they’re saying about me: “Not inaccurate”, “I thought he was older”, “I don’t share his feelings”. Want to know more? This is why I am the way I am.
