Charitable, non-profit (501)(c)(3) organizations whose service to Idaho communities includes hunger relief are invited to apply for Idaho Food Bank Fund grants. This fund was established by the Idaho State Legislature in 2009 and monies are accepted on behalf of donors by the Idaho Tax Commission through what is commonly known as a ‘tax check off’ on Idaho State tax returns. The Idaho Foodbank is the recognized fiduciary agent for the Idaho Food Bank Fund, which is administered through an agreement between three statewide organizations: The Idaho Foodbank, Catholic Charities of Idaho, and the Community Action Partnership Association of Idaho. Applicants do not need to be a member or partner of these organizations to apply for a grant from the Idaho Food Bank Fund.
57-824. IDAHO FOOD BANK FUND legislation reads: There is hereby created in the state treasury, the Idaho Food Bank Fund. Moneys in the fund shall be appropriated to The Idaho Foodbank to provide food, information and support services to hungry people of this state through partnerships with nonprofit agencies, the food industry, government, volunteers, corporations and individuals by serving as a central clearinghouse for donated and purchased food.
Idaho Food Bank Fund grants will be awarded to organizations involved with hunger relief efforts serving communities in the state of Idaho. The typical grant amount is expected to be between $500 – $5,000, though strong applications with a special project over $5000 will be considered on a case by case basis.
The stated purpose for the Fund is to ensure that food providers are able to request
- funding for assistance in expanding existing capacities (i.e. new freezers or refrigerators, shelving and/or transportation) and associated costs (installation, permits, etc.)
- funding for hunger relief services and programs
- funding for emergency food purchases
The 2013 grant applications will be accepted July 1, 2013 through July 31, 2013. Application forms are available at www.idahofoodbankfund.org or by emailing email@example.com.
