A Fresh Approach Capital Campaign Announcement
Our challenge has not been a shortage of food, but a lack of warehouse space.
This has never been more true than now during the Coronavirus emergency food crisis we’re currently facing. A lack of warehouse capacity, especially for perishable goods, limits our ability to distribute food in a timely way to feed Idaho’s hungriest families, seniors and children.
The Solution: Idaho’s New Hunger Relief Facility
Thanks to a generous lead gift by Jacksons Food Stores, The Idaho Foodbank has agreed to purchase a 102,000 sq. ft. building in Meridian that will serve as the new IFB statewide food distribution facility.
Purchasing the new food distribution facility, along with the cost of renovations to add teaching kitchens, ofﬁce space and a volunteer center total $13.2 million. With the lead gift of $1.88 million, and the proceeds from the sale of IFB’s current 28,000sq. ft. warehouse in Boise, the goal of A Fresh Approach Capital Campaign is to raise $8.8 million in donations for the remaining cost of the project.
