“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home — so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. […] Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.” — Eleanor Roosevelt

Join us for the following volunteer event to help children in our community. We’ll be putting together backpacks full of food for kids over the holiday break.
The Post Falls Food Bank works closely with the Post Falls School District to provide food for over 150 students over the holiday break. These children who are living at or below the federal poverty level and are at risk of not getting enough to eat over the long break. Nutritionally balanced food is identified specifically for this program. The food packs are purchased by the Post Falls Food Bank and need our help to assemble these backpacks.
