Supporting our communities and the future leaders of our industry is important to the IGSA and its members. Whether it be through cash donations or potato deliveries, we support organizations that feed underprivileged Idahoans. Additionally, the IGSA contributes thousands of dollars in scholarship money each year to support higher education endeavors of individuals with a connection to the Idaho potato industry. All of these contributions are made possible by the generous donations of our members and sponsors.
Feeding America is a national organization that has taken upon itself the task to change the reality that 1 in 8 Americans struggle with hunger. Through a network of food banks staffed by employees and volunteers, the organization feeds many of Idaho's most needy families. The IGSA has provided donations to Feeding America since 2012 and was able to donate $5,000 cash in 2019.
The Idaho Food Bank provides service to communities throughout the state to families struggling with hunger. As it does every year, the IGSA had the honor of facilitating delivery of thousands of pounds of potatoes to the Idaho Food Bank in 2019 including deliveries for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
College scholarships available to IGSA members and your employees' children.
