Food distribution event set for Wednesday at Ford Idaho Center


The Idaho Foodbank is hosting another food distribution event at the Ford Idaho Center on May 5th.

The event is happening from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., or until food runs out.

This time there will only be one semi-truck of food, so organizers expect the food to run out sooner. In the past, there have been two trucks full of food.

The USDA Farmers to Families Food Box program is an outdoor drive-through distribution where boxes of food will be loaded directly into cars.

KIVI-TV reports, the food is free and no documentation or proof of eligibility is required. The boxes include a variety of dairy, pre-cooked meat and produce items.
