Idaho Governor Brad Little has issued a proclamation declaring October Hunger Awareness Month. The Idaho Hunger Relief Task Force and Idaho Foodbank are recognizing three organizations that have gone above and beyond to serve their communities during the pandemic.
October is Hunger Awareness Month in Idaho. The word hunger is often and casually tossed around in our daily lexicon, but what does it really mean? It is estimated that 1 in 9 individuals and 1 in 8 children were food insecure in Idaho prior to the pandemic. Recent projections, that consider the impact of COVID-19, radically change that ratio to 1 in 6 Idahoans and 1 in 4 children could potentially experience food insecurity.
The “Farmers to Families Food Box Program” is part of the USDA’s Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP). We now have distribution dates for October. Please note: Dates and times are subject to change and distributions may be added, rescheduled or cancelled with little notice.
