People in his family have been in similar situations to those facing food insecurity, especially now during the pandemic. The North Central team of The Idaho Foodbank out of Lewiston is proud to have Lionel on the team, helping to make a difference in the community.

The Idaho Foodbank has been hosting A Chefs’s Affaire for 22 years to raise money to help feed our hungry neighbors. Every year Treasure Valley area chefs have joined with us to serve up amazing gourmet meals, along with a host and a live auction. This year we went virtual, streaming the event on YouTube, Facebook and Zoom.
Thank you to everyone who helped to make our first-time Back to School Telethon fundraising event a success! The vast variety of people who contributed their time, talent, and treasure to support Idaho children was incredible. Staff, MCs and talented entertainers from across the across the state (and nation) volunteered to provide entertainment and encouraged others to give back as well.
