BOISE, Idaho — The down economy has more people turning to the Boise Rescue Mission for a hot meal and that has the Mission turning to Treasure Valley residents to help fill gaps. During the month of March, the non-profit is hosting a "March to End Hunger" food drive.
The Mission is collecting canned foods, plus fresh fruits and vegetables.
"Meals really do change lives. People walk through our front doors we want to know what caused them to be homeless, then we figure out how to help them overcome that problem with one of our services or programs, but so often it'll start with a meal," said Jason Billester, Boise Rescue Mission's Vice President of Development.
