IDAHO — Idaho residents Duane and Lori Stueckle have inspired the Idaho Foodbank's #IdahoKind campaign by matching every donation to the cause up to $100,000.

Idaho Kind's goal is to raise $200,000 and provide up to one million meals to families in need.

“At the Idaho Foodbank, we experienced so much kindness and generosity through the holiday season," said Carlyn Blake, Idaho Foodbank Development Manager. "What always happens when the holidays are over donations tend to decrease a little bit, and we just wanted to find a way not only to continue to sustain the amount of food that we have been distributing at a much higher level since the pandemic began but also we wanted to continue to generate the kindness.”

They ask that you use #IdahoKind on social media... hoping to encourage 1,000 people to do one act of kindness in their community.

From walking a neighbor's dog to buying someone coffee, anyone can participate in the campaign.
