Passed by the Idaho State Legislature in 2009, the Idaho Food Bank Fund provides financial support to Idaho nonprofits who offer food insecurity relief. The Idaho Foodbank serves as the official fiduciary agent and partners with Catholic Charities of Idaho and the Community Action Partnership Association of Idaho to administer the awards annually.
“Thank goodness for the Idaho Food Bank Fund and the generous support of Idaho taxpayers!” said Doug Alles, Executive Director of Catholic Charities of Idaho. “These grants to local organizations make a significant impact on the work to address food insecurity. We know that food insecurity impacts every community in Idaho and it is an honor to steward the work of The Idaho Food Bank Fund to improve the lives of our neighbors.”
