Grants of up to $5,000 to Idaho nonprofit organizations for activities that address food insecurity. Funding is intended to support programs and services that relieve hunger, encourage healthy eating, and create nutrition awareness. Funds may be used to purchase food, provide nutrition education materials, operate programs, expand capacity (new freezers, shelving, transportation, etc), and assist underserved and marginalized populations.

Applications will ask how the request has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic effects, but being affected by the pandemic is not required to receive funding.

Thousands of children, families, and senior citizens across Idaho depend on access to free emergency food. This food insecurity also causes numerous health problems. For these reasons, the Idaho Food Bank Fund provides financial support to local nonprofits who distribute food or provide nutrition education for people experiencing food insecurity. Grant awards help these organizations—which are often volunteer-driven—cover vital costs and activities associated with their work.
