You Can Help Make Sure A Friend Or Nieghbor Doesn’t Go Hungry

If you listen to the Mix morning show, you know Kate and I have a soft spot in our hearts for the Idaho Foodbank and the work they do.  It’s ridiculous to think, in this day and age, that here in Boise, Idaho, children will go to bed hungry tonight.  That is why every August, we host a day long marathon to raise money for the Idaho Foodbank’s backpack program.  Over the past two years our listeners have helped to raise over $130,000 for the Idaho Foodbank.  This weekend you can help, by taking part in the largest one day food drive in our country.  You could even be helping a friend or a neighbor and their kids who may be going to bed at night, hungry.

Every year on the second Saturday in May, which is this Saturday, May 10th, 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 will be receiving a card and a bag in the mail to load up with food.  You can leave your loaded bag of food by your mailbox 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.
  • Garden City – 8100 W. Marigold
  • Main – 770 N. 14th St.
  • Overland – 1650 Targee
  • Timberline High School – 701 E Boise Ave.
