Jumpin' Beans Mobile Food Bank
Hayden, ID 83835
Details: Jumpin' Beans founder Jason Ball asked, "Are we gonna 'hole up' in an underground shelter?! Nah...people need our help right now! Let's make sure vulnerable individuals never go hungry!" Jason and the Board of Directors of GCCPG, responding to a need in their community, installed a community garden in 2011, prior to the official formation of Jumpin' Beans Mobile Food Bank in 2012. Why a mobile food bank? It became clear that many people in need cannot get to the food bank. So, Jumpin' Beans Mobile Food Bank sprang forth. Jumpin' Beans is different than most organizations. Rather than simply throw good resources at a problem that keeps growing, Jumpin' Beans is doing everything in its sphere of influence to change the root of the problem. Jumpin' Beans delivers food, yes, but Jumpin' Beans would rather teach someone gardening skills and install an irrigation system, or teach someone to raise laying hens and a milking goat. We can help plant seeds in the ground, teach people to glean the excess from farmers, and share with each other. Sustainability and perpetuity is always the goal. How else can we feed everyone on this great planet?
