BOISE, Idaho — Stinker Stores and the Idaho Foodbank 2021 Stomp Out Hunger campaign raised $100,000.
Employees and customers raised the money, breaking the previous record. The donations come at a pivotal time, as the food bank hopes to provide nearly three million meals through the end of the year.
The Idaho Foodbank serves over 200,000 people every month in Idaho. It's estimated the money will create over half a million meals.
"When they stop at their neighborhood Stinker Store, there's an opportunity to make that donation, and we see it in Idaho helping our friends and neighbors is part of our value system in Idaho, and this campaign allows Idahoans to participate in that," said President Idaho Foodbank Karen Vauk.
Stinker Stores matched donations up to $25,000. One dollar goes a long way when you donate to the food bank, providing four meals to Idahoans in need.
