Idaho Falls Senior Center Holds Food Drive to Replace Funding | Local News

Food insecurity in the US went down between 2020 and 2021, but one age group saw a rise instead of a dip. Those over the age of 60 aren’t always sure of where their next meal will come from. The Idaho Falls Senior Citizens Community Center tries to alleviate this by providing daily in-house meals and delivered meals. Unfortunately, the weekend meals they have traditionally provided may not continue.

“We lost our grant funding. It ended in December, so we haven’t been able to give them any weekend meals,” said the center’s executive director, Sarah Ryner.

To remedy the situation, the center is holding a food drive the entire month of March.

The center is looking for food donations in the form of canned goods. It is looking for foods for a balanced diet, such as proteins, fruit, vegetables, and starches.

Food items can be dropped off at several locations into St. Patrick’s Day-themed boxes. Locations are Broulins, Albertsons on Broadway and 17th Street, Walmart on Utah, Grocery Outlet Bargain Market, the Humanitarian Center, City Hall, the city Courthouse, Lincoln Court Assisted Living, Fairwinds Assisted Living, and the Idaho Falls Public Library.

Amid food inflation, TikToker shares 3 tricks to spend just $50 a week on healthy meals for 2

As Americans struggle with higher food prices after years of inflation, one young woman shares her rules and tips on how she lives in order to achieve her dream of owning a home.

The average American household spent $213 more in January to purchase the same goods and services it did one year ago due to persistent inflation. However, Kristy Nguyen, a 23-year-old from the Los Angeles area, has found industrial ways to make ends meet.

“Food doesn’t have to be expensive if you know how to find the best deals and budget properly,” Nguyen told The New York Post, saying her grocery plan allows her to make three healthy meals a day.

She spends a maximum of $50 per week on food for her and her partner and sometimes as little as $35 a week if she has leftover groceries from bulk orders.
