What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Idaho Foodbank Programs

In addition to distributing food through our community partner network, The Idaho Foodbank supports various hunger-relief and educational programs that promote healthy families and communities including Backpack, School Pantry, Picnic in the Park, Share Our Strength's Cooking Matters, Mobile Pantry, Health and Nutrition, CSFP (Commodity Supplemental Food Program for seniors), and TEFAP (The Emergency Food Assistance Program).

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Each week during the school year, elementary-age children in need are given a backpack containing food for the weekend. At just under six pounds, these special packs include enough nourishing, child-friendly food for two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners and two snacks.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Schools provide a trusting environment where staff can offer parents a little extra support to feed their families. Pantry shelves are stocked with nutritious, non-perishable food items that can help sustain a family for up to five days.

Population(s) Served
Families

From June to August, five days a week, children in low-income neighborhoods enjoy a nourishing lunch and educational/physical activity provided in a nearby community park.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Courses provide practical nutrition and budgeting information, tasty recipes, and hands-on cooking lessons for all ages. Offered at no cost to the participant, the program is supported by underwriters and volunteers.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Designed to help populations that do not have access to food assistance, Mobile pantries distribute fresh, dry and frozen food to under-served, primarily rural, communities.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Developed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), CSFP improves the health of low-income seniors at least 60 years of age, by adding nutritious food to their diets. Eligible seniors receive a free monthly food box that includes nutrition information and helpful recipes.

Population(s) Served
Seniors

The USDA purchases a wide selection of products for TEFAP distribution. While the exact products available from year to year may change, the emphasis is always on food choices that promote variety and proper nutrition.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
