As we approach the holiday season, it is important to remember that not all of our neighbors can fill their plates and bowls with food. That is why The Idaho Foodbank is pleased to host Empty Bowls events in the Treasure Valley and in Pocatello.
Starting in 2005, the Albertsons Turkey Bucks campaign has raised funds for The Idaho Foodbank to provide food for holiday meals to Idahoans in need. This year, the Turkey Bucks campaign resulted in customers and employees at 11 Albertsons stores raising money to provide food for more than 200,000 meals this holiday season.
At an event at The Idaho Foodbank warehouse in Meridian, representatives from Albertsons and The Idaho Foodbank spoke about their important partnership to help families struggling to make ends meet.
