Food Security for CWI Students

9% of 500 Donor goal
This campaign ended on September 29, 2023, but you can still make a gift to College of Western Idaho by clicking here!

A recent survey showed 40% of College of Western Idaho (CWI) students have experienced food insecurities. 

To address this issue, CWI created five food and hygiene pantries. Through the pantries, students experiencing food insecurity can access food and hygiene supplies they need for themselves or their families. 

In addition, Agricultural Science Chair Andrea Schumaker developed a campus garden for horticulture students to get hands-on learning opportunities. Students raise the produce in the garden and then deliver it to the CWI pantries. Over 2,000 pounds of fresh produce was grown for students in 2022. 

Your gift to CWI Food Pantries or the Campus Garden will support food security and student success on campus.


College of Western Idaho is partnering with the Ford Idaho Center on their special Concert Cares program.  Concert Cares is a partnership on behalf of the Ford Idaho Center and OVG360 to support local causes that impact our community and reinforce our commitment to establish and maintain strong community partnerships.
