NORTH IDAHO HUNGER RELIEF FUNDING
We are grateful to announce that Governor Brad Little’s Coronavirus Financial Advisory Committee approved additional funds to support community food banks, including Second Harvest, during the current public health and economic crisis. This funding is restricted to responding to the increased need for food assistance in Idaho and will exclusively support Second Harvest’s food distribution in Boundary, Bonner, Kootenai, Benewah and Shoshone counties. Our friends at the Idaho Foodbank also received funding to support their hunger-relief efforts throughout the rest of the state. Allocated funds will help cover food purchases along with transportation and distribution expenses needed to get food to people facing hunger. For more information about this recent funding allocation, read more here or here.
