Our vision is that in a state as abundant as Idaho, hunger will not exist.
Our mission is to put private and public resources into action statewide in order to eliminate hunger and provide food security for all Idahoans.
We are quickly approaching Idaho Gives! The Idaho Hunger Relief Task Force couldn't run without the generous support of individuals and organizations! We need your help! Go to www.idahogives.org on May 3 to donate and help support our Screen and Intervene program where we helped over 200 families receive a full resource assessment and follow-up from trained care navigators, and helped connect patients to local resources such as; weatherization services, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) and, Double-Up Food Bucks at farmers markets.
As part of Idaho Gives, we will be hosting an in-person event!
Come join us and Wingtip Press at Ming Studios, 420 S. 6th St, Boise, ID on May 3rd from 5-9 pm for the Leftovers VIII International Print Exchange and Silent Auction. This silent auction will benefit the Food is Medicine program. Peruse the artwork while enjoying some light refreshments, and acoustic guitar music by Chris Norred and Ben Sargis, all while supporting a great cause!. Check our Facebook Event Page for updates:
