Kuna Food Bank
Kuna Community Food Bank/Pantry -
Operating continuously since 1994, this agency provides emergency food to
the Kuna, Idaho community and residents of the Kuna School District.
We can use your help - all year 'round. Many individuals and organizations
help keep our shelves stocked so we can do our job. Thanks to ALL!
The "Scouting for Food" food drive is our largest event each year!
It was held on November 14th, 2015!
We thank the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts and their parents. This
year they brought in about 18,000# of food!!! This food drive helps
us stock our inventory each year. Thank you for giving generously!
Another fundraising opportunity is with HR Block Tax Consultants. They
make a donation for each client who gives them permission... so if you are
using a Tax preparation service, check out HR Block and help the Food Bank.
Our second largest food drive is the "Letter Carriers Food Drive" which was held on May 7. We received approximately 4,000 pounds this year.
To receive food assistance, call the Kuna Community Food
pantry at 922-4745 (the Kuna United Methodist Church) and leave
a message. (You will need to press "1" when prompted to get to the
food pantry mailbox.) One of our volunteers will call you to
schedule an appointment. (We check messages Mon,Tues,Wed & Thurs)
We try to schedule appointments for Tues, Wed & Thurs afternoons.
(If your work schedule conflicts with this we try to work around it.)
To donate food or funds - call 922-4745 to schedule a time when
we can meet with you. To donate money, please mail your check to:
Kuna Food Bank, P.O. Box 17, Kuna ID 83634. You can also drop
your food in the Troop 181 Food Bin at Albertson's Foods in Kuna.
We require clients to be in the Kuna School District - and we limit clients to
60 days between appointments - in order that we can help as many as possible.
(We serve the greater Melba area, when their food bank is not operating)
