How you can help!


You can help in one of the following ways:


Food Donations: The Food Bank welcomes all donations of professionally packaged food, as well as fresh fruits and vegetables. Wild game is gladly accepted as long as it has been professionally cut and wrapped by a certifited USDA processor (Woods Meats). We are also happy to accept farm fresh eggs. The Food Bank has a number of coolers and freezers to keep perishable food fresh. The Food Bank cannot accept homemade or home-processed foods, rusty or unlabeled cans, alcoholic beverages or open packages.


Monetary Donations: Monetary Donations are always welcome, as they can be used for specific needs. It is often more cost-effective for the Food Bank to purchase needed items than for an individual to do so. The Food Bank partners with 2nd Harvest Inland Northwest to procure food supplies at a reduced cost, as well as a number of other organizations.


Endowment Donations: The Bonner Community Food Bank Endowment is a permanent investment fund set up through the Idaho Community Foundation in which regular withdrawals from the invested capital are used for ongoing operations of the food bank.  The endowment fund provides a stable, guaranteed source of future income for the Bonner Community Food Bank.


Time Donation: Time is precious, and the time donated by Food Bank volunteers is invaluable to us. Volunteers give 500-600 hours of time to the Food Bank each month. If you would like to join this elite, dedicated, fun-loving group, please let us know!
