Montana Food Bank Network (MFBN) believes that every person has a basic human right to access nutritious, high-quality food that nourishes the mind, body, and soul.
We are Montana’s only statewide food bank. We work with the national hunger-fighting organization, Feeding America, and have developed several programs specifically to address the unique challenges of accessing food in Montana. We distribute food from Heron to Wibaux, Eureka to West Yellowstone and everywhere in between. We partner with neighborhood food banks, community pantries, social organizations, homeless shelters, schools, and hundreds of other organizations that are all working together to end hunger in Montana. We believe that together we can end hunger in Montana.
Our mission is to end hunger in Montana through food acquisition and distribution, education and advocacy. MFBN has been feeding Montana since 1983. Our vision is a Montana free from hunger where everyone has equal access to nutritious food.
With a $1 donation, we are able to provide enough food for at least 5 wholesome meals. How is this even possible?
Through partnerships with local and national food manufacturers, agriculturists, and other food manufacturers we are able to secure large amounts of food through generous donations, grants, or wholesale. Then, through a team of volunteers, we are able to break down the large-scale food into manageable family size portions so our partner agencies and other programs are then able to easily store and distribute these to those individuals in our state that are struggling to make ends meet.
Community support is vital to make our vision of a hunger-free Montana possible. You are here, you obviously have a passion to be a part of getting emergency food to our neighbors in Montana. We need you to get involved in a meaningful way. Whether that way is volunteering, donating, or starting a food site in your neighborhood, your purpose defines your meaning. There is no time better than now be a part of the movement to end hunger in Montana.
