The Teton Valley Food Pantry Board of Directors is pleased to announce the promotion of

Sue Heffron to the position of Executive Director of the pantry. Sue has served as the Director of Operations since March 2021 and, during that time, has improved both the face of the food pantry by facilitating the move to our central Driggs location and its operations by ensuring availability of nutrient dense foods for our clients. Sue, her staff, and volunteers work tirelessly to keep the pantry open daily for client distributions and serve upwards of 100 families each week. Additionally, the pantry crew collects, stocks, and distributes tens of thousands of pounds of community-donated pantry items yearly.

Sue has expanded the pantry’s reach within the community by implementing food pantries in the schools, providing take-away “meals in a bag” for our ABC families, bringing in fresh produce through donations from local gardeners, providing supplemental commodities to seniors, senior food delivery through SWOT, and facilitating access to weekend food for children via the Backpack program. Sue will continue to oversee pantry operations while continuing to develop relationships for funding and partnering as our new Executive Director. If you see Sue around town please congratulate her on her new position!





Great opportunity to serve the Teton Valley community. The Food Pantry is looking to fill a part time (15-20 hr/wk; $15-$18/hr) pantry assistant position in Driggs, ID. The job involves responsibility for running food distributions; interacting with clients and volunteers three days a week. This position has growth potential as our valley grows and our community needs expand. Please submit short resume indicating interest in our mission to elaine@tvfoodpantry.com.

Thank you for your compassion in supporting your neighbors in need who use the Food Pantry, especially during the holiday season.


You can host a Seat at the Table during this busy season. Now is the time to help ensure every member of our valley has enough food as they sit down to eat with their families.


Who needs your help? The short answer is that they are people like you and me – respectable and hardworking but worried. We see it firsthand when folks scramble to get to the Food Pantry after work. Yes, they are working but with not enough hours to make ends meet. They are the backbone of our valley and they need your help.


You can help a neighbor in need put a meal on the table this Thanksgiving and Holiday season. Your donation will feed the children, adults and seniors who come to the Food Pantry every week and hope to share a holiday meal with their families. The Holiday season is the time when the Food Pantry has the most visitors.

Teton Valley Food Pantry is a largely driven by volunteers and community partnerships. That means your donation has the biggest impact possible.

We ask you to please be part of hosting a Seat at the Table this season with a donation to purchase holiday meals for your neighbors in need. You may donate by mail to: Teton Valley Food Pantry PO Box 518 Driggs ID 83422 or through our website: www.tvfoodpantry.com.
