The Idaho Foodbank couldn’t do the work it does without the dedicated help of AmeriCorps VISTAs. Each year, these amazing and driven individuals willingly give of their time and effort to try and solve hunger in Idaho. Whether it’s helping run programs like Picnic in the Park, or mobilizing the public to support pantry programs all over our state, the 160,000 people we serve each month benefit from the work and dedication of AmeriCorps VISTAs. Let’s not forget, when the Foodbank was created in 1984, it was a VISTA who made it happen.
For all of these reasons, we at the Foodbank wish a happy AmeriCorps VISTA week to the men and women who have graced us and our communities with their hard work. Thank you!
