Details: The basic concept of Community Action, as begun by the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, was to assist the poor. This was the premise upon which Western Idaho Community Action Program (WICAP) was established in 1965 and still operates. Emergency food is available at our Community Action Centers. Eligibility is based on immediate need. A food box is made up of a variety of food to give the customer a three-day supply, which is made up according to the number in the household. Some types of food are United States Department of Agriculture foods, foods purchased with Emergency Food and Shelter Program funds; foods donated from local grocery stores, and gleaned foods.
