Every day there are over 1690 (& rising) hungry children in our community

Poverty levels are on the rise due to the current economy, and too many Idaho children are hungry over the weekends. Throughout Idaho, teachers share many stories of children returning to school on Monday after a weekend without enough to eat.


Statistics show that Bonner County is one of the worst counties in Idaho with child hunger issues. Unfortunately studies focusing on food deprived children indicate that they are more likely to become sick, have a decreased attention span, and lack the enthusiasm to learn because they are concentrating on their hunger more than learning. (Bonner Community Food Bank).
