Total Sacks to Date
Albertsons has teamed up Boise State football with its yearly tradition of “Sacks for Hunger,” a unique way to raise funds to help provide food for the roughly 179,000 people The Idaho Foodbank serves each month. For each sack the Broncos defense tallies this season, Albertsons will donate $500, up to $20,000 for the season.

In past years, Albertsons has donated the equivalent of more than 4.5 million meals in food alone through campaigns like Turkey Bucks, Santa Bucks and many other gifts throughout the year. Since the beginning, Albertsons has set itself apart as a partner in hunger relief, even serving a position on the Foodbank’s Board of Directors. In addition, The Idaho Foodbank receives strong support from Albertsons employees and customers.
The Idaho Foodbank is an independent, donor-supported, nonprofit organization founded in 1984, and is the largest distributor of free food assistance in Idaho. From warehouses in Boise, Lewiston and Pocatello, the Foodbank has distributed more than 170 million pounds of food in its 33-year history and in the last fiscal year, enough food to provide more than 15.5 million meals to Idaho families. The Foodbank distributes food through a network of more than 400 community-based partners. These include schools, pantries, senior centers, feeding sites, and shelters. The Foodbank also operates direct-service programs that promote healthy families and communities through good nutrition.
