The fact of the matter is that the Pandemic has wreaked havoc on our lives in many different ways. A lot of businesses have gone away which means a lot people ended up without jobs. This of course leads to people defaulting on mortgages, rent, car payments and while there are programs out there to help with those necessities sometimes we forget about the most essential things like food.

In February the Idaho Foodbank held a huge food distribution event at the Ford Idaho Center and nearly 3000 food boxes were given out. A box of food is great but the need in the Treasure Valley is huge and only goes so far so it's happening again today at the same location and tomorrow in Mountain Home. The event today was from 11a-4pm and the next event is Thursday Feb 25, 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM at Optimist Park, Elmcrest St & NW Marathon Way, Mountain Home, 83647.

You might be asking yourself, how can I take advantage of this opportunity? You will be pleased to know that this is open to the public and there are no qualifications to receive the free food boxes. If you show up while supplies last you can expect to receive a variety of produce, pre-cooked meats and dairy products.

Taking into consideration that there are almost 300,000 Idahoans who are considered to be food insecure, this is a breath of fresh air. If you are in need please show up to one of these events or if you know someone who is make sure you let them know about tomorrows event.
