Community Involvement

IVI sponsored the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl

IVI is a sponsor of  the annual Idaho Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, held annually at Boise State University’s Bronco Stadium. The 2012 game was held on Saturday, December 15th, with a matchup between the Utah State Aggies, ranked at no. 22 and the 2012 WAC champion, against the Toledo Rockets of the MAC, ranked as high as No. 23 in 2012’s AP poll. The Aggies racked up 28 fourth-quarter points to finish 41-15 over the Rockets. The win marked the Aggies’ sixth-straight, moving them to an 11-2 record on the season.

The 16th annual 2012 bowl game was telecast nationally on ESPN, included nearly 500 paticipants, and over 26,000 fans. The bowl game began as the Humanitarian Bowl, and that is the continued mission—to recognize the positive impact teams, coaches and student-athletes have in their communities and their leadership roles in promoting humanitarian efforts.

Many of the area’s valued IVI customers and vendor partners were able to join IVI owners and associates at our hospitality sponsorship tent at the bowl event. Click the link below to view some of the photos:

IVI supports the Boys & Girls Club of Ada County.

The Boys and Girls Club of Ada County is an organization in the community of our corporate office in Nampa, Idaho, USA. Their area clubs serve over 4,000 area youth, ages 6 to 18. These young people are provided a safe place after school, life-enhancing programs, and ongoing relationships with caring adults.

One example of our involvement was during the holiday season when IVI was joined by Lamb Weston and Arrowhead Potato in supporting the Boys & Girls club of Ada County with instant mashed and fresh potatoes.
