The Idaho Food Bank Fund was established by the 2009 Legislature as a cooperative effort between three well-respected statewide Idaho nonprofit organizations: The Idaho Foodbank, Community Action Partnership Association of Idaho, and Catholic Charities of Idaho. The donation opportunity has been on the Idaho State Income Tax Form 40 since 2009 allowing taxpayers to designate a donation to the Fund.

The Fund accepted grant applications from any Idaho nonprofit that provides hunger relief. The Fund supports projects that expand existing food storage or distribution capacities, provide nutrition education, or otherwise increase support services related to hunger relief in Idaho.
