Various community organizations in Gem County have joined forces to fight food insecurity.

One way these organizations are fighting food insecurity is looking to expand the current back pack program in Gem County. The reason the backpack program exists is to prevent children from going hungry over the weekend. Current partners include WICAP, Southwest District Health, Emmett Police Department, Emmett Chamber of Commerce, Emmett Friendship Coalition, Gem County Emergency Services, Lighthouse Hospice and Gem County residents.  If you or your organization is interested in helping with these efforts please contact

If you believe your child would benefit from this program please contact:_____________
