The Albertsons Companies Foundation has selected The Idaho Foodbank as an official charity partner to receive donations from the annual Hunger Is campaign to eradicate childhood hunger. All donations made at 34 Albertsons stores in Idaho from September 1 – 30, 2019 will be used to provide healthy breakfast foods for kids via the Backpack and School Pantry programs.
Picnic in the Park ends on Friday, August 9. We want to thank everyone who participated, volunteered and especially to these twelve Vista Service Associates that made it all happen!
August is Harvest month here at The Idaho Foodbank! We are expecting Beets from Pleasant Valley Farm anytime now.
We have been packing lots of apricots and are expecting a gauntlet of peaches, apples, plums, and pears that should last up until Thanksgiving.
It’s that time of the year where you might have more that popped up in your garden than you really expected, but you don’t want to throw it away. We accept fresh produce at our branches but here are some solutions to help you get your donation to a food pantry near you.
The Idaho Foodbank’s Board of Directors was pleased to recognize volunteers from across the state this morning in honor of their commitment to hunger relief. Just this last year over 24,000 volunteers put in over 58,000 hours at our warehouse and branch locations, working at fundraising events, distributing food at mobile pantries, and helping teach Cooking Matters classes. These volunteers who put in over 100 hours last year deserve special recognition.
The Idaho Foodbank, Walmart, Sam’s Club and Feeding America are kicking off the sixth annual nationwide “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” campaign, which will run from April 22 to May 20. There are three ways to participate – purchasing a participating item in-store or online, donating in-store or donating on Feeding America’s website.
