Dump Hunger celebrated its fifth year with record-breaking results. Communities across the Intermountain West rallied with Western States Equipment, Albertsons and Wells Fargo to raise 769,462 pounds of food for local food banks.
This total more than doubles the Dump Hunger goal to fill five dump trucks. This important donation comes at a time of year when donations are down but the need continues.
In Idaho, the total raised was 551,313 pounds or 459,428 meals. In Eastern Idaho area the drive collected 36,538 pounds of food – enough to provide 30,448 meals for hungry Idahoans.
