Grant Description
Grants of up to $7,500 to Idaho nonprofit organizations to address food insecurity and provide nutrition education services. Funding is intended for programs and activities that promote healthy eating and nutrition awareness, and that increase food access for underserved populations. Grants can be used to operate programs, buy food and educational materials, build capacity, or promote access for anyone in need, including marginalized populations.

The Idaho Food Bank Fund supports nonprofits that offer hunger relief and/or promote healthier eating in their communities. Grant awards help these organizations—which are often volunteer-driven—cover vital costs and activities associated with their work.

Funds will support programs that provide nutrition awareness, promote healthy eating, or relieve hunger. Specifically, funds can be used to operate programs, purchase food, purchase nutrition education materials, expand capacity (new freezers, shelving, transportation, etc.), or promote access for anyone in need, including underserved populations.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Any 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located in Idaho whose services include hunger relief may apply.
