Saturday marked the 30th anniversary of Stamp Out Hunger and we are happy to report that the National Association of Letter Carriers brought in 90,000 pounds of food in Southwest Idaho and 7,700 pounds in Pocatello.
May is Older Americans Month and this year the focus is around aging in place. A key component of aging in place is addressing the nutrition needs of our seniors.
Together with a network of over 465 food distribution partners, The Idaho Foodbank has a statewide reach with a local touch into all 44 counties in Idaho. In April we were able to come together as a network for in-person and online Partner Conferences, as well as a listening session with an emphasis on the connection and process of moving neighbors from a place of Hunger to Health.
