Creating a more prosperous future for all

Food Programs

City of Good partners with local restaurants and growers to curate and deliver ready-to-eat meals to individuals, children, and families in the Boise community. This could be anything from a Fuel Kit with enough nutrition to last a food insecure member of our community all weekend or a hot meal to welcome a refugee to Boise. Watch this space to learn more about new programs serving our neighbors that will be coming soon!

BUILDING CONNECTIONS

We work to connect restaurants with local growers and food producers. As our programs grow, so too does our commitment to making it easier for local producers to get their food into kitchens across Boise. We work to ensure that all of our restaurant partners are using 30% local food products and that consumers know where their meals are produced.

Volunteer Mobilization

Beyond supporting our own programs, City of Good helps recruit, train, and manage volunteers for nonprofits whose missions support and elevate our own.

Our Mission

City of Good mobilizes people and businesses to address community needs through a sustainable food system and an inclusive economy. We strive to create a circle of good where all involved benefit. We partner with local nonprofits and businesses to respond to needs as they arise with a sustainable, community-centered approach. City of Good partners with local restaurants and growers to curate and deliver ready-to-eat meals to those who need it. This could be anything from a Fuel Kit with enough nutrition to last a food insecure member of our community all weekend or a hot meal to welcome a refugee to Boise. Meals are prepared in local restaurants paying a living wage, using 30% locally sourced food, and are delivered to those experiencing food insecurity.

We help create a more prosperous future for all.

We aim to make it easy for people to do the right thing: get good food to people who need it, volunteer for community events, support local businesses, keep farms thriving and the local food scene vibrant and accessible.

Our Circle of Good

When every step of the process benefits participants, we’re working within a circle of good. We strive to create mutual benefit at every stage of our program development and execution. We respect, appreciate, recognize, and build relationships with our partners, donors, recipients, volunteers, and staff equally. Meals are not provided out of a sense of pity or a desire for gratitude but with a commitment to supporting a healthy food system and a strong community where all residents have access to good food and those who provide it are paid a living wage.
