Teton Valley Food Pantry (TVFP) leads the movement to end hunger in Teton Valley. Even in good times, many of our community members still live without a secure source of food on a daily and weekly basis. Last year more than 900 families in our valley needed to use the Food Pantry to supplement their food budget.
The Teton Valley Food Pantry provides essential food for local low-income families and individuals at a safe, respectful, and convenient location. We partner with community organizations, clubs, schools, churches, businesses and individuals to collect healthy food for distribution to people in need.
TVFP is a “choice” pantry which means it is set up like a grocery store where clients choose from a variety of foods to meet their basic needs. Our shelves are stocked with food from the Idaho Food Bank, individual donations, Community Supported Agriculture organizations, and food rescue. Local food drives led by the Scouts, schools, churches, businesses, and service organizations make up a significant part of our annual supply.
We offer three options for community members who live without enough food: regular distributions, a mobile pantry, and emergency food. The permanent Food Pantry is located at 1420 North Highway 33, Suite 103 in the Trailhead Business Center (Old Ford Garage). This location is open for food distribution every Friday from 10 am to 2 pm, as well as the first and third Wednesday of each month from 6 to 7:30 pm. A mobile pantry is available on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 1:30 pm at the Driggs LDS Stake auditorium. For those in a crisis situation, emergency food is available by calling our Pantry Coordinator at 208-399-2020.
We are fortunate to have a large, dedicated volunteer force to help with weekly distribution days and evenings. Our equally dedicated Pantry Coordinator keeps the overall operations running smoothly. All in all, Teton Valley Food Pantry is a true community effort where your donation has direct impact on the most basic element of people’s daily lives – FOOD!
