The Idaho Food Bank Fund gives Idaho taxpayers the opportunity to help hunger relief organizations through a “check-off” donation on their state tax return.

How it works

The Idaho Food Bank Fund was established by the 2009 Legislature as a cooperative effort between three statewide Idaho nonprofit organizations: The Idaho Foodbank, Community Action Partnership Association of Idaho and Catholic Charities of Idaho. The donation checkbox first appeared in 2009 on the Idaho State Income Tax Form 40, which allows taxpayers to designate a dollar amount donation for the Fund. The Fund uses these financial contributions to award grants to local hunger-relief organizations to help them improve infrastructure and other costs associated with their efforts.

The non-profit organizations that can apply for award grants must be located in Idaho and have 501(c)(3) status, but are not required to have any affiliation with Community Action Partnership of Idaho, Catholic Charities of Idaho or The Idaho Foodbank.

The Idaho Food Bank Fund accepts grant applications between July 1 – July 31 of each year. For more information:
