Food Rescue is a partnership with grocers statewide that provides an opportunity for The Idaho Foodbank to quickly distribute nutritious and often perishable food to our neighbors in need, while also preventing unnecessary waste.

Food Feeds Community Partnerships

Every year, The Idaho Foodbank collects millions of pounds of food that is distributed through our facilities in Boise, Pocatello, and Lewiston to more than 480 community partners across Idaho. Most of the food is donated – but we do purchase food for certain programs or to fill gaps with nutritious food.

We receive food through community food drives, our food rescue program, growing projects, and from special industry partnerships.
