How it Works

Donating Is Easy!

When completing your state tax form there is an area for making a donation to various Idaho non-profits.

One of those is the Idaho Food Bank Fund, which is labeled Idaho Foodbank on line 39 as seen below:


When the minimum Fund balance is reached – as required by the Legislature – smaller non-profits such as emergency food pantries, community kitchens, senior centers and shelters, can apply to the Idaho Food Bank Fund for grants. These grants can be used to expand existing food storage, operations and overall agency capacity. Some of these badly needed items are refrigerators, freezers, shelving, vehicles as well as other resources that will aid in their efforts.
