TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - Seven hundred and fifty families with a stated need in the Magic Valley received food boxes for the second time Saturday in the Twin Falls County West parking lot.

In response to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the community, the USDA Coronavirus Food Assistance Program and the Idaho Foodbank were able to supply 1,500 food boxes containing items purchased from local farmers and producers.

This community food distribution is expected to happen the fourth Saturday of every month up until December.

This is happening. If you or someone you know needs food assistance please come by!

“I think that we hear of how many people are in need, but this is truly eye opening, just to see how many people are here, not only here but here four hours early, just waiting to receive the food,” said Katie Onaindia with the Idaho Foodbank. “We are really happy to be able to do this and hope to continue to do this for as long as we can.”

Community volunteers say this distribution ran a bit more smoothly then last months, as they re-worked some of their traffic routes to make things more efficient.
