About Us

St. Mary's Food Bank is a volunteer organization that has provided emergency food services to the poor and needy since 1989. We are the primary food pantry, serving the poorest section of Ada County, Garden City and North Boise. Demographics in this area are comprised of immigrant, refugee, homeless, and poverty stricken families, most with children. We serve nutritious food boxes to our clients without bias. On average, we serve 1,954 individuals per month - 717 are children. We also meet the needs of numerous low income working families struggling to make ends meet, but earning a bit more than the required limits to qualify for assistance.
