BOISE-- The Idaho Foodbank says a new donation will provide more than 60,000 meals for hungry Idaho families.

Tuesday morning, CenturyLink presented the foodbank with a check for more than $38,000, which includes more than $6,400 raised by local employees.

The company also collected more than 3,800 pounds of food.

The drive benefits general foodbank operations as well as the backpack program, which provides meals for school children to take home on weekends.
