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 200 community partners across Idaho. Most of the food is donated – but we do purchase food to fill gaps and for certain programs.
We receive food through community food drives, our food rescue program, growing projects, and from special industry partnerships.
Community Food and Fund Drives
Scouting for Food and Stamp Out Hunger are among the largest annual food drives that enjoy strong community awareness and support here in Idaho. While they are national in scope, local businesses and event sponsors are also encouraged to conduct food and fund drives to show support for those in need.
Sometimes special partnerships yield surprising results. For example, the Foodbank works with the Idaho Department of Correction and volunteer farmers to cultivate acreage located near a prison facility.
