Holiday food box means the world to residents on social security
The Idaho Food Bank served more than eleven-hundred people, on Monday during their mobile distribution. In just over two hours, in total, they served 324 households.
At the Nez Perce County Fairgrounds around 300 families got their holiday boxes filled with rolls, stuffing, potatoes, turkey, and other holiday foods.
The Idaho Food Bank says people are struggling to make ends meet this time of the year, so the need to help is that much more important.
For two area residents, they say the help is much appreciated in their times of struggle.
“Oh, this means the world to us because we’re just living on our social security, widows, and by the end of the month, there’s barely enough money to go around for groceries so this means a lot,” said Charlotte Nide.
If you are in need and were not able to pick up a holiday meal, the Idaho Food Bank is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. with emergency food bags for families.
