Getting Help

There are a number of ways to connect with our network and get the food you need along with information on with other services.

  • The first way is to check our Food Assistance Locator – you’ll find a searchable map of the state that can help you locate a food pantry nearest you.  Be sure and call make sure they’re open and to see what, if any, ID and other information they want. Then go get your food.
  • The second way is to call 211, the toll-free Idaho CareLine. The CareLine is open 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday-Friday, and operators there can refer you to a food pantry and help with many other necessities. Be sure and tell them what you need.
  • The Community Action agency for Ada County is ElAda, phone number 208-377-0700.  The Community Action agency for Canyon County is WICAP, phone number 208-642-9086.
  • You may also want to look at Idaho Food Stamp Program (SNAP) web site, which offers instructions on how to best navigate the food stamp system in Idaho.
