The Idaho Foodbank and Micron Technology gave food and hope to their fellow Idahoans just in time for the holidays.
As part of this annual tradition, Micron provides a turkey or ham in celebration of Thanksgiving to each member of the Micron team, who can in turn choose to donate them to The Idaho Foodbank. This season, Micron employees gave 1700 turkeys and 681 hams, delivering much-needed food to more than more than a thousand households.
The technology leader remains steadfast in its commitment to help the communities in which it operates. Since 2011, Micron has delivered more than 210,800 pounds of food, enough to provide the equivalent of over 175,000 meals to Idaho residents. In addition to food donations, Micron has supported nutrition programming for communities including Native Americans, as well as The Foodbank’s capacity expansion.
“The engagement of Micron employees in this donation is heartening,” said Karen Vauk, President and CEO of The Idaho Foodbank. “We appreciate Micron’s leadership in community giving. Their ongoing support of The Idaho Foodbank has made a difference in the lives of Idahoans and this donation will help more of our neighbors enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.”
The Idaho Foodbank gratefully accepts food and fund donations to help provide 2 million meals each month of this holiday season to Idahoans who are food insecure. To learn more about hunger relief efforts in your community, go to idahofoodbank.org/hope-for-the-holidays .
