BOISE, Idaho — If you are one of the many Idaho families staying home, out of work or just trying to make ends meet, St. Vincent de Paul says it can help you out. The group has expanded it's food banks to now include many communities throughout the Treasure Valley, not just Boise.

"We're currently serving people from Elmore all the way through Canyon County, Gem County, Boise County, virtually anyone that feels like they need food," said Ralph May, St. Vincent de Paul SW Idaho executive director. "They come to this pantry in Boise and we will take care of them."

Officials at St. Vincent de Paul say the need for their services has more than doubled since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
