The Idaho Food Bank Fund is accepting grant applications during the month of July. This grant application process is open between July 1st and July 31st to Idaho 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations. Grant funding is available to provide nutrition awareness, promote healthy eating or relieve hunger.
Funds can be used to operate programs; purchase food; purchase nutrition education materials; expand capacity (new freezers, shelving, transportation, etc.); or promote access for anyone in need, including underserved and/or marginalized populations. 501(c)3 hunger relief organizations serving Idahoans are eligible to apply for these grants.
The Idaho Food Bank Fund was established by the Idaho State Legislature in 2009 and provides financial support to Idaho nonprofits. It is administered by Catholic Charities of Idaho, Community Action Partnership Association of Idaho, and The Idaho Foodbank.
The fund is financed by the generosity of the Idaho taxpayers when they donate through a “check off” box on their Idaho State tax returns. In 2021 grants totaling $133,500 were allocated to 36 statewide nonprofits that provide critical nutrition education and hunger relief services across the state.
