Taxpayers can once again donate to the Idaho Food Bank through their state income taxes.
The Food Bank said the Idaho Food Bank option is at line 39 on Form 40, information from the group’s newsletter said.
Last year more than $100,000 was donated to the Food Bank through the generosity of taxpayers, an increase of more than 20 percent in the four years the option has been available.
Grants to anti-hunger groups in 2013 included: $4,970 to the Eastern Idaho Community Action Program in Idaho Falls to purchase food for Haven shelter; $3,770 to the Mountain View Church of the Brethren in Boise to buy a refrigerator; $2,470 to the BoCo Backpack Committee in Bonners Ferry to purchase supplemental weekend food; and $3,495 to the Wm. Cobbley Senior Center in Challis to purchase a refrigerator and on-demand water heater.
The Idaho Food Bank Fund was established by the 2009 Legislature as a cooperative effort between three well-respected statewide Idaho nonprofit groups, The Idaho Foodbank, Community Action Partnership Association of Idaho and Catholic Charities of Idaho.
