The Idaho Foodbank is facing unprecedented demand due to widespread layoffs and uncertainty amidst coronavirus. Through a recent grant provided by Chobani, the Idaho Foodbank purchased a new refrigerated food truck specifically to serve South Central Idaho. 

Joining Idaho Matters today to talk about what the new truck will provide is Karen Vaulk, the President and CEO of the Idaho Foodbank, and Alyson Outen, Director of Community Relations at Chobani.
