Thirty-seven nonprofit organizations receive funds to finance projects and services supporting food insecure Idahoans

Boise, ID – The Idaho Food Bank Fund announced the recipients of their 2023 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 37 organizations across the state received grants to further their work to solve hunger in  Idaho. The grants totaling $139,600 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 under-served and marginalized Idahoans.


Ten organizations in North and North Central Idaho were given grants this year. Please see below for the complete list of North and North Central Idaho grant recipients. We encourage you to contact these organizations to get further information on their grant  projects and how they  serve the community.

Passed by the Idaho State Legislature in 2009, the Idaho Food Bank Fund provides financial support to Idaho nonprofits who offer food insecurity relief. The Idaho Foodbank serves as the  official fiduciary agent and partners with Catholic Charities of Idaho and the  Community Action  Partnership Association of Idaho to administer the awards annually.

“Thank goodness for the Idaho Food Bank Fund and the generous support of Idaho taxpayers!”  said Doug Alles, Executive Director of Catholic Charities of Idaho. “These grants to local  organizations make a significant impact on the work to address food insecurity. We know that food insecurity impacts every community in Idaho and it is an honor to steward the work of The Idaho Food Bank Fund to improve the lives of our neighbors.”
