A new report shows the number of people dealing with hunger in Idaho has dropped overall. But children in some parts of the state are still struggling to get enough to eat.

The annual study by Feeding America – a national network of food banks – shows that overall food insecurity in the state has decreased incrementally.

 A northern Idaho food bank is hungry for donations after it saw fewer donations over the holiday season.

Lewiston's Community Action Partnership Food Bank hasn't calculated totals for 2016, but Director Connie Granbois said donations were down a bit through December, The Lewiston Tribune reported.

Food bank warehouse manager Steve Small said food drives that traditionally bring in many donations either weren't as successful as expected or didn't happen.
