The Idaho Botanical Garden and local non-profit City of Good are helping feed food-insecure students at Boise State University.

BSU keeps a pantry stocked with canned and boxed food, fresh produce, hygiene products, and other items for students who might not otherwise have access. Some of that fresh produce will now be harvested from the Idaho Botanical Garden. And volunteers from City of Good will help cultivate and distribute the locally sourced bounty.

“Food insecurity is a huge concern, and our partnership with City of Good and Boise State University Food Pantry is such a great opportunity to make a positive impact,” stated Mylee Dyke, a horticulturalist overseeing the vegetable garden at Idaho Botanical Garden.

The produce is available for free to any student enrolled in at least one credit at BSU.
