Starting on July 1 through July 31 any 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located in Idaho with services aimed at hunger relief can apply for a grant to help support programs and services, food purchase, equipment, or capital purchases that are intended to reduce hunger. In 2018, 35 grants were awarded around the state.
The Fund accepts grant applications from any Idaho nonprofit that provides hunger relief. Example projects are ones that expand existing food storage or distribution capacities, provide nutrition education, or otherwise increase support services related to hunger relief in Idaho.
The Idaho Foodbank, Catholic Charities of Idaho and the Community Action Partnership Association of Idaho work together to grant and administer the awards; applicants are not required to be associated with these organizations to apply or receive funding.
