The mission of the School Pantry Program is to supply food and community assistance to students and families who are in need at school. There are several ways to reach students in need of food assistance. In schools where a BackPack Program is not the right fit, or additional resources are needed, School Pantries can fill the gap for students.
Billings has pantries in six schools, established in 2012. Great Falls has been running School Pantries since 2011, and have seen the positive impact they have on students and their families. This is a new program to MFBN, which we will be piloting in three cities in Lake and Flathead counties, in fiscal year 2014.
