Last year, Second Harvest distributed more than 30million pounds of food to a network of 250 neighborhood food banks and meal centers. These partner programs currently feed more than 55,000 people a week in Eastern Washington and North Idaho. Second Harvest is able to direct almost 99 percent of all donations, including in-kind gifts, toward collecting, transporting, warehousing and distributing food for people in need. We value all who have joined us in the fight against hunger in the region.

The Educational Talent Search (ETS) program is designed to assist economically and educationally disadvantaged students. This program supports secondary students through graduation and assists them in enrolling at post-secondary institutions. Typical students are limited income, first generation and college bound, and are in need of assistance to expand their educational opportunities.
Boise State Universitys ETS program supports 1500 students (8th through 12th grade) at numerous schools in Ada, Canyon, and Owyhee counties.
ETS educational specialists provide services to students individually and in small groups on a weekly basis. Students receive information to help them become successful in school, graduate and enroll in post-secondary education. Instruction and information include effective study habits, goal setting, enrolling in college-bound classes, career information and interest testing, college admissions, and navigating the financial aid and scholarship process.
Additionally, ETS students are given the opportunity to attend college and career fairs, career workshops, local college tours and participate in the TRIO National Days of Service and the Hispanic Youth Symposium. Juniors and seniors have the opportunity to visit out-of-state colleges and universities as well.

The Boise National Forest offers a Tree Trunk and Wilderness Box to help you teach about forest plants, animals, and management. The wide range of materials in each box appeal to many grade levels. Here’s an idea of what these kits contain:
Discover subtle differences in cones, leaves and twigs using the samples in the trunk. Tree cross-sections show the inside of a tree; use Project Learning Tree activity (included) to help students analyze annual growth rings. Books and posters provide additional background information for teachers and students. Watch the video The Man Who Planted Trees to hear of one man’s ancient kinship with the Earth. Listen to songs about photosynthesis, decomposition, and plant parts sung by the Banana Slug String Band and Billy B. Read Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf aloud to students. Find ideas for lessons in Ranger Rick’s Naturescope, The Green Scene Guide, or Project Learning Tree activity samples.
The Wilderness Box and the Wilderness and Land Ethic Activity Book were designed to provide an interactive resource to promote awareness and appreciation of wilderness. Watch the Wild By Law video for a 50 minute overview of the wilderness movement leading up to the 1964 Wilderness Act. Use hand puppets to learn about mammals common to many wilderness areas. Compare the skulls of herbivores and carnivores. Practice simple map and compass skills. View photos of pristine areas in Idaho Magnificent Wilderness. Act out the Impact Monster skit or watch the Soft Paths video to show low impact travel. (The resources in this box support the Wilderness and Land Ethic activity book included in the box. However, you do not need to use the activity book to use the resources.)
