The Idaho Foodbank has great community partners that donate fresh produce to us during the summer months, but we need your help packing and sorting food. More than 1 in 6 Idaho children and about 1 in 7 Idahoans is food insecure. Without volunteers, we can’t get food out to the people who need it. […]
In the last year, we’ve had more than 24,000 volunteers help solve hunger in Idaho. Our volunteers gave more than 58,000 hours to the effort. That’s the equivalent of 28 full-time employees. We’d never be able to do this important work without all of you.
On January 18, 2016, thousands of people across the United States and Idaho are set to celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. with a national day of service, setting up service projects and volunteering at local non-profits.
This is a letter from Brook Richter, who was one of a family of three generations which came to volunteer at The Idaho Foodbank on the day before Thanksgiving. She comes from a family of caring people with hearts for the mission to solve hunger. We’ll let her tell you about her experiences in her own words.
Volunteer lead Janelle Haag is great supporter of The Idaho Foodbank and fighting hunger in Idaho! She has been nominated for Molina Medicaid Solutions of Idaho Community Champion Award and we are so proud! Congratulations Janelle!!!
Harvest season means millions of pounds of fresh produce coming through our warehouses. These incredibly generous donations from agriculture leaders all over our state make for nutritious gifts for the Idahoans in need. But it also puts a strain on operations in our warehouses as the effort is to move this food as quickly and safely as possible.
