Can the Idaho Food Bank Raise 1 Million Meals?
The Idaho Food Bank has set quite an ambitious goal. That goal is to raise enough money in the month of March to supply 1 million meals to Idahoans in need.
The Million Meals In March campaign is attempting to raise 250 thousand dollars which is enough money to generate 1 million meals.
KTVB reports as part of the launch Win-Co Foods donated 20 thousand dollars worth of food.
The Million Meals In March program is a great way to help those in need. The people if Idaho are very philanthropic especially during the holiday season, however, the hunger doesn't go away when the holidays fade, and the need for food is still there.
Millionmealsidaho says that there are over 232,000 men, women and children (76,000 children) struggle with hunger on a daily basis. To address the need, The Foodbank must collect and distribute more than a million pounds of food every month to support our programs and more than 400 community partners.
