During the month of March, The Idaho Foodbank encouraged the community to share kindness. Kindness is choosing to do something that helps others. Researchers have found that people who are kind or regularly engage in acts of kindness tend to have higher well-being.
During Idaho Kind, we are encouraging individuals to engage in their communities by doing an act of kindness. This could include volunteering with a local nonprofit or food pantry; sending a thank you note to a teacher or a health care worker; or helping a sick neighbor with yard work.
We hope that you will join us and encourage Idahoans within your community to join the #IdahoKind Challenge by completing acts of kindness in March. You can share your acts of kindness and those you have witnessed on social media using #IdahoKind to inspire others. Acts of kindness are not limited to The Idaho Foodbank – we want kindness to be felt everywhere.
The generosity and kindness of Idahoans is a key part of our work to address food insecurity. From our volunteers to our individual and corporate donors, our ability to help our neighbors who are struggling hinges on the kindness and generosity in our communities. During March, we hope to share stories of kindness to uplift and to inspire others.
