Gatherings, held twice a year in the spring and fall, are IIRAH-organized and sponsored public forums that provide information about pressing public issues relating to hunger in Idaho. Past themes have included wage justice, food deserts, local food systems, grocery tax credits, and Medicaid expansion. Our gathering in September 2015 inspired this response from an attendee who noted how the public conversation held personal meaning.
Hunger Summit scholarships.
IIRAH sponsors scholarships for low-income participants to attend biennial statewide Hunger Summits in Boise. IIRAH also helps plan and lead workshops at the Summits. Each Summit allows faith leaders, charitable emergency food providers, state and local government organizations, health providers, advocacy groups, business and industry, and community members to learn about hunger and food insecurity issues and to craft solutions appropriate to Idaho.
IIRAH supports legislative and public policy initiatives to alleviate food insecurity in Idaho. IIRAH publishes white papers, testifies at legislative committee hearings and partners with other Idaho organizations and non-profits in promoting food security. IIRAH has spoken out on issues such as minimum wage, the sales tax on food, child support, SNAP (food stamps) rules, child nutrition, Close the Gap, and food deserts.
IIRAH conveners frequently participate in planning and organizing community activities and in educating the public through op-ed pieces, lectures and presentations. IIRAH manages a website and reaches out through an e-mail list with calls to action when hunger-related issues develop. Conveners also participate with various public and state government committees and coalitions that address issues relating to hunger and food insecurity.
Note: IIRAH will not share your donation information with other organizations.
