The kick off concert for Feeding the 5000 was held Saturday, March 12 at the First Presbyterian Church in Pocatello. The concert featured a number of performers from 14 different faith groups. Steve England, mayor of Chubbuck, and Brian Blad , mayor of Pocatello attended and issued a joint proclamation declaring the support of both cities. Joye Jones, Manager of the Eastern Idaho Food Bank moderated the program, citing facts about hunger throughout the program.
