Kuna Community Food Bank is there for those who need it

Kuna Community Food Bank, affiliated with the Idaho Foodbank, is located in the basement of the Kuna United Methodist Church, 260 W. 4th St., and is available to those in need.
Started in 1983, this agency provides emergency food to the Kuna community and those living within the Kuna school district boundaries.
The Food Bank’s largest food drive is the annual “Scouting For Food” drive in conjunction with local Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts, who collect over 12,000 pounds of food. The Kuna Food Bank also benefits from the annual Letter Carriers’ Food Drive.
To receive food assistance, call the Kuna Community Food Bank at 922-4745 (the Kuna United Methodist Church) and leave a message. One of the Food Bank’s volunteers will call you to schedule an appointment.
The Food Bank requires clients to be in the Kuna school district, and clients are limited how often they can get food, in order that the Food Bank can help as many as possible.
To donate food or funds, call 922-4745, or mail your check to: Kuna Food Bank, P.O. Box 17, Kuna ID 83634.
