A large number of children here in the Treasure Valley suffer from food insecurity…they don’t always know when there next meal will be coming.  They don’t know if they will be able to eat a meal tonight before going to bed.  For some their only resource is the Idaho Food Bank.  Right now the food bank shelves are running low and they need your help.  This Saturday you can take part in the biggest food drive in the country by being a part of “Stamp Out  Hunger”  Here’s how:

Idaho Food Bank

Every year on the second Saturday in May, letter carriers in more than 10,000 cities across America deliver much more than mail.  As they walk and drive along their postal routes, mail carriers will also collect food during the "Stamp Out Hunger National Food Drive"  This is the largest one-day food drive in the nation, maybe even the world.

Treasure Valley residents this week should have received a card and a bag in the mail to load up with food.  Even if you didn’t receive a card and bag, you can bag up your food and leave it for your mail person by hanging it on your mail box or you can drop it off at one of the following Foodbank locations:

  • Cole – 3485 N. Cole Rd.
  • Collister – 4650 W. State St.
  • Eagle – 141 N. Palmetto
  • Five Mile – 1350 S. Five Mile Rd.
