Summer Feeding ProgramThe “Picnic in the Park” lunch program operates from noon to 1 PM weekdays at Carl Miller Park and Skyview Terrace Apartments (outside clubhouse). Meals are available free for children ages 1 up to age 18. Adults can receive the same meals for a small fee.

The Idaho Department of Correction hosted a resource fair this week, aiming to foster safer communities by giving newly released offenders the resources they need to stay out of crime. 6 On Your Side's Madeline White introduces us to one ex-offender who plans to do just that. https://buff.ly/2I1gMM7

A small part of what we do is share what we have learned here in Southwest Idaho with a larger audience. This way, other St. Vincent de Paul organizations around the country can benefit from the lessons we have learned and we can also take home their ideas. This enables us to give more people in the community an even better hand up!
