[ARCHIVED] Idaho Falls Power Invites Community to Help Fill Food Need for Holidays


(Idaho Falls, ID) -- Idaho Falls Power (IFP) and Idaho Falls Fiber (IFF) are inviting the community help to brighten the holidays for struggling local households during their 1st Annual “Fill the Ambulance” food drive. The utility hopes to collect donations of non-perishable food and cash to help the Community Food Basket of Idaho Falls. 

The event will take place in front of the Sam’s Club building located at 700 E. 17th from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, November 19th.  During that time Idaho Falls Power and Idaho Falls Fiber employees will be outside the Sam's Club with their Idaho Falls Fiber Ambulance where residents can visit to donate non perishable food items or cash to help fill the ambulance.  All of the donations will be collected and provided to help fill the local Community Food Basket to help with food needs throughout the community for the holidays.  

Food need can be especially high during the holiday season, and IFP and IFF employees organized the effort as a way to try and give back and help others in need in the community during a traditionally difficult time of year for local food pantries. Community Food Basket – Idaho Falls (CFBIF—formerly known as the Idaho Falls Community Food Bank) began in 1980 as a community effort among several churches to meet the emergency needs of their church members. Today, CFBIF works to meet the emergency food needs of families and individuals facing food-insecurity in the greater Idaho Falls area. Currently, we serve over 850 families monthly, with some months exceeding 1,000 families (over 4,000 individuals).

If you would like more information about the food drive or how to contribute, please call Candice Pruitt at 208-497-4993 or email at [email protected].
