Member Highlight: Post Falls Food Bank
The Post Falls Food Bank started out very small in North Idaho. Now, they have extended to “operate out of a 4,000 square foot building… collecting over 1 million pounds of food a year” for Kootenai County.
Instead of distributing the food, the Post Falls Food Bank transformed into a “small ‘Mom and Pop’ style grocery market with registered guests traveling up and down [the] market aisles choosing the food they'd like.”
Executive Director, Leslie Orth, expands on the organization’s process: “All our guests are given a certain number of points with which to 'purchase' food every month. The food in the market is all assigned a point value and everyone has control over managing their budget and choosing the food items they like and need.” However, fresh produce is always “zero points with no limit.”
