The holidays are a meant to be a time of togetherness and joy but for those facing hunger feelings of fear, desperation and sadness often prevail. The Idaho Foodbank’s goal is to provide “Hope for the Holidays” to thousands of Idahoans who are struggling to put food on the table by distributing the food for 2.7 million meals now through December. To make this goal a reality we need your help.
Here is how the community can help:
Donate frozen turkeys in November and December directly to The Idaho Foodbank or any of the hundreds of local food pantries, shelters, senior centers and community kitchens across Idaho. You can also drop your turkey off any of Les Schwab’s 30 locations across the state. Note: Turkey donations received by Nov. 12 at The Idaho Foodbank have the best chance of being distributed in time for Thanksgiving and by Dec. 14 for Christmas.
Donate Funds: For each dollar donated you help the Foodbank provide 5 meals. Donate now. Major grocery retailers and other generous community-minded business are offering opportunities to support our Idaho neighbors in need during the holiday season (see below!)
