Happyville Farm

Idaho’s only urban, certified organic, nonprofit food bank farm

Our Mission

Our mission is to feed the hungry, strengthen our community, and create a healthy, just and sustainable future for all. We grow fresh organic food for the Community Food Basket-Idaho Falls under the guidance of our sponsoring organization, the Regional Council for Christian Ministry, a leading area nonprofit for over 50 years. The CFBIF serves over 850 families monthly, with some months exceeding 1,000 families (over 4,000 individuals).
