UPA’s Shootout Hunger Food Drive Generates More Than 77,000 lbs. of Donated Food

On Sept. 26, 2023, the annual Shootout Hunger Food Drive generated 77,682 lbs. of donated food that filled the pantries in Duchesne, Roosevelt, Manila and Vernal. The food drive lasted from Sept. 7-25 at the Duchesne County Food Pantry. This year’s haul of total donations shattered last year’s total of 37,750 lbs. of food.

Companies that participated in the food drive include Caerus Oil & Gas, Finley Resources/Uinta Wax, Javelin Energy Partners, Ovintiv, Scout Energy Partners, Wasatch Energy Management and XCL Resources.

The food drive is also a competition between companies. The company that donates the most pounds of food per employee earns bragging rights for the year. Here are this year’s top three companies:

  1. XCL Resources: 1,346 lbs. per employee
  2. Javelin Energy Partners: 407 lbs. per employee
  3. Scout Energy Partners: 154 lbs. per employee

“Events like this make me proud to represent the oil and gas industry in Utah,” said UPA President Rikki Hrenko-Browning. “The people who comprise these companies not only work tirelessly to develop the resources we all use every single day, but they’re also part of these communities, want to give back, and want them to thrive. Friendly competition never hurts, and bragging rights for the year add a little extra motivation.”

For the third year in a row the generosity of our industry has crushed the previous year’s record. We look forward to continuing to push the bar in our commitment to helping meet the needs our local communities.
