CHUBBUCK, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - Food pantries are running thin on food supplies because of the suddenly high demand for help.
The Gate City Christian Church's food pantry serves emergency food supplies to people in the Chubbuck area. Recently, they've served three times as many people as their normal average, according to Mackenzie Gorham, an organizer.
To fill the gap, the pantry partnered with the City of Chubbuck and local businesses to collect donations.
The city provided clean trash bins for businesses to place outside their location with signs asking for non-perishable donations.
Donations can be made at the following locations, or cash donations can be accepted here.
- Citizens Community Bank (850 W Quinn)
- HomeSmart Real Estate Office (190 W Burnside Ave. Suite E)
- Stuart's Media Group (770 E Chubbuck Road)
- Physicians Immediate Care Center (134 W Chubbuck Road)
