The Idaho Foodbank has launched a statewide effort to increase the food and funds collected in March and provide hungry Idahoans with 1,200,000 healthy and nutritious meals. Aligned with its Hunger to Health initiative The Idaho Foodbank is dedicated to progress the development of innovative and sustainable programs to make healthy eating accessible and affordable to all Idahoans. Every dollar donated to The Idaho Foodbank can provide food for ten meals with a match from our generous sponsors.
Donor support in terms of food and funds is always highest in the months of November and December – the traditional season of giving. Unfortunately, hunger in Idaho is not limited to the holidays. In the last fiscal year, The Foodbank provided food for more than 18.6 million meals to Idahoans living with food insecurity. The Foodbank distributes food through a network of more than 450 partners including schools, food pantries, senior centers, feeding sites, shelters, mobile pantries and churches.
