The Dump Hunger food drive ends tomorrow, needs your help
The Dump Hunger food drive ends tomorrow, and they still need your help.
"We continue to see an increase in demand for our services, and the Dump Hunger campaign is critical to our post-holiday efforts to meet this demand," said Karen Vauk, President and CEO of The Idaho Foodbank in Boise. "Hunger is a problem that impacts families and seniors in every neighborhood and region, often regardless of employment status. The Idaho Foodbank and our network of partners serve those who need help during challenging financial times until they are able to move forward, and Dump Hunger enables us to better serve those in need after the holidays."
Ways to Donate:
Those interested in donating food to Dump Hunger can do so at any Western States location or participating Albertsons stores and Wells Fargo branches in Idaho, western Wyoming and Montana, and eastern Oregon and Washington. A full list of locations can be found here. Monetary donations can be made at participating Wells Fargo locations or online at www.idahofoodbank.org/dumphunger.
Items of Greatest Need:
Every donation makes a difference, as many regional food banks are experiencing an increase of 30 percent or more in requests for help compared to last year. While specific needs vary, each food bank can use the following items:
*Boxed meals (Mac &Cheese, Hamburger Helper, etc.)
*Canned meals (soup, chili, stew, etc.)
