National Ice Cream Day Helps Idaho Foodbank

Thomas Hawk

Summer means ice cream and the Idaho Foodbank has a way to indulge your sweet tooth AND help folks in need. In the winter, the Foodbank's Empty Bowls event puts hot soup in a handmade bowl to raise money. The Third Annual Summer Empty Bowls fills those bowls with ice cream for a donation as the Foodbank tries to meet its goal of 25,000 meals for Idahoans this summer.
