The following is a press release from the City of Pocatello.

POCATELLO – The Marshall Public Library of Pocatello is looking to salvage your surplus products. Whether it’s a little or a lot, every gesture counts.

Idaho is home to more than 152,890 food-insecure people, according to The Idaho Foodbank.

The library collects donations for The Idaho Foodbank through its annual “Garden to Give” program. In 2019, the Marshall Public Library donated approximately 800 books of community-contributed products. The collection has not taken place for the past two years due to the pandemic, so the library staff are delighted to have it back this year.

The library will accept donations until September and the first weeks of October. Organizers are asking those with additional products to consider donating.

“The community has been great this year. We know things have been tough for everyone, and the people of Pocatello have come out to help others. Every little bit counts and we’ve received donations of all sizes, so thank you!” Library spokeswoman Amy Campbell said.
