Three and a half decades is a long time to stay on mission, and a long time to do good.
The Idaho Foodbank was honored Thursday for 35 years of helping Idahoans stay fed and nourished. The honor comes at a perfect time--the kickoff of the Foodbank's "Hope for the Holidays" fund drive.
Governor Brad Little helped celebrate the milestone with the Foodbank staff.
Happy 35th Anniversary to The @idahofoodbank! Since it was established, The Idaho Foodbank has distributed 221 million pounds of food — that’s nearly 184 million meals for Idahoans across the state in need! #idahofoodbank #idahome #hopefortheholidays pic.twitter.com/z2L5Y0OdR5— Brad Little (@GovernorLittle) October 30, 2019
When the Foodbank first opened its doors in 1984, Governor John Evans cut the ribbon and helped celebrate the occasion.
