Magic Valley Partnership Grows Programs

Supported by a grant from the ConAgra Foods Foundation, the Foodbank led a year-long collaboration project to assess and address childhood hunger and food insecurity in Twin Falls County. The University of Idaho Extension Campus was a major partner in this effort, as were numerous organizations dedicated to finding community-wide solutions to hunger. Funding supported expansion of the Foodbank’s Cooking

Funding supported the expansion of the Foodbank’s Cooking Matters program, with eight six-week courses completed in the county. Grant funds also supported four existing School Pantries and two new School Pantry sites at Boys and Girls Club of Magic Valley in Buhl & Robert Stuart Middle School in Twin Falls.

“Stable access to nutritious food can help the people we serve before the medical bills start stacking up.”
