During November and December, The Idaho Foodbank’s Hope for the Holidays Campaign promotes efforts across the state to alleviate hunger. We have already had many great events and there are still opportunities to get involved. With the support of the community, The Idaho Foodbank is working to allow everyone, regardless of their current financial situation, to have a holiday meal and nutritious food on the table throughout the season.
