About Us

Our Story

In 2006, a group of friends and colleagues gathered to watch a video featuring the Oregon Faith Roundtable Against Hunger (OFRAH). We learned that OFRAH engages diverse religious communities throughout Oregon, including direct service agencies. Together, they develop solutions to the root causes of hunger through education and public policy advocacy. We were so deeply inspired by what we learned that we formed the Idaho Interfaith Roundtable Against Hunger (IIRAH).

Since then, IIRAH has grown to include dozens of endorsing organizations, including Christian, Muslim, and Jewish congregations throughout Idaho and other organizations that share our vision.

We believe in the unity of the human family. Therefore we work for just and equitable systems in which all people can have food security with dignity. Idaho Interfaith Roundtable Against Hunger studies system failures that are the root causes of hunger. We educate the public, inform policymakers, and advocate for needed change.

IIRAH is a 501(c)(3)

IIRAH is a charity registered with the US Internal Revenue Service. We have no paid staff but have an extremely dedicated and passionate group of volunteers who work hard to achieve mission impact.
