Idaho Food Bank Fund 2019 Grant Recipients

The Idaho Food Bank Fund announced the recipients of their 2019 grants targeted to support nonprofits that provide nutrition awareness, promote healthy eating, and relieve hunger. Thanks to the generosity of Idaho taxpayers who chose to donate to the Idaho Food Bank Fund, this year 35 organizations across the state received grants to further their work to solve hunger in Idaho. The grants totaling $100,000 were specifically allocated to help recipients operate programs, purchase food, expand capacity (new freezers, shelving, transportation, etc.), and to promote or provide nutrition education for underserved and marginalized Idahoans.
