Food Pantry

Home » Food Pantry
1 in 6 children in Idaho go to bed hungry every night. Through our partnership with the Idaho Foodbank, we host 24/7 food pantries at all of our sites for families in need.

We envision educational justice where every child has an enriched environment to thrive.

Proper nutrition is the foundation of all growth and development. Giraffe Laugh makes it a priority to ensure that children and families are fed and that food insecurity is diminished by regular access to quality, abundant food.

Food pantries are located at each site where parents and children are so they can help themselves to food when needed. All centers have freezers and refrigerators for protein sources and dairy products that would otherwise perish. Families can access them anytime during hours of operation.

Giraffe Laugh partners with the Idaho Foodbank and area gardens including our own on-site gardens to provide food. Donations are also accepted.
