BOISE, Idaho — Over the past four weeks, the Curds + Kindness food truck by Dairy West has driven all over Utah and Idaho to celebrate frontline workers' efforts.

The truck handed out grilled cheeses and cheese curds to every worker who has helped keep the community together during the pandemic.

They have stopped at hospitals, police stations, fire departments and more.

The food truck made its final stop in Boise today to celebrate and thank the Girl Scouts of Silver Sage for their hard work.

For each box of cookies, the Girl Scouts sold, Dairy West matched $1 and donated it to the Idaho Foodbank to purchase dairy products for families in need.

"Today is just a thank you to the Girl Scouts for their help in providing the food bank with much-needed dairy, and for partnering with dairy farmers across our two states. So, just a thank you to them and thank you to the food bank for keeping us fed," Community Relations Manager for Dairy West, Melinda Wolfe.

The Girl Scouts sold over 6,000 boxes of cookies, and together they helped raise $6,500 for The Idaho Foodbank.
