The Idaho Foodbank is an independent, donor-supported, nonprofit organization founded in 1984, and is the largest food bank and distributor of free food assistance in Idaho. From warehouses in Boise, Lewiston and Pocatello, the Foodbank distributes food for millions of meals each year through a network of over 400 community-based partners across the state.
The Idaho Foodbanks Backpack program ensures that students who are chronically hungry have access to adequate food over the weekend by providing them with a backpack full of nutritious, kid-friendly food every Friday during the school year.
School Pantries are a natural extension of the Backpack program . If children who receive weekend Backpacks are dealing with food insecurity, it makes sense that their siblings are, too. This program helps provide families with food through a pantry set up inside the school, where access is convenient for both students and family alike.
Picnic in the Park
Schools out for the summer! No more classes, homework, or tests. However, for some students, when school is out, that means no more guaranteed meals.
The Mobile Pantry Program distributes dry and frozen food to underserved, usually rural, communities. This program helps populations that do not have access to, or have difficulty accessing, food assistance.
The Idaho Foodbank is now working in collaboration with healthcare partners to make it easier for Idahoans who are food insecure and have health issues to get the food they need to promote better health.
The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP)
The USDA purchases a wide selection of products for TEFAP distribution. While the exact products available from year to year may change, the emphasis is always on food choices that promote variety and proper nutrition.

4-H programs are in every Idaho county. Youth from cities, suburbs, towns and rural settings participate. Participation is the key in 4-H. The more you do, the more you will get out of it and the more friends you will make.
4-H Afterschool works in over half of Idaho counties. It has put 4-H tested educational materials into Idaho schools and community centers since 1990.
The programs are run by staff and trained volunteers. Topics vary, but can include:
science and technology
visual, cultural and theater arts
health and physical activity
4-H gives custom training to staff and volunteers at each site. 4-H curricula are age-appropriate and kid-tested.
Outreach adds value to our teaching and research activities by helping to build partnerships with stakeholders in Idaho and beyond.
Our outreach infrastructure includes campuses in Moscow, Boise, Idaho Falls and Coeur dAlene; 42 county Extension offices; and multiple research and learning facilities.
