Feeding those experiencing food insecurity is always a priority. Our monthly food boxes contain the essentials for a family's nutritional needs. The boxes are packed based on the size of the household and distributed monthly to those in need.
"Food For Kids" Program
The Food for Kidsprogram was started in 2010 by Helping Hearts & Hands. Each week before they leave school on Thursday, 65-70 Gooding children receive enough food for a three day weekend that is easy for them to prepare if there is no adult available to help. The food they receive is nutritious and easy for a child to handle.
Winters are hard in Idaho, and a good coat can be beyond the reach of many families. To aid in keeping the next generation warm and well, we started our coats program. 306 coats were distributed to children, as well as over 100 to adults. We appreciate the donation of new or gently used coats!!!!!
