Our Mission is to End Hunger in Montana

Updated September 2023

Montana Food Bank Network (MFBN) is Montana’s only statewide food bank and member of Feeding America. MFBN distributes food to 360 partners that include community food banks, pantries, senior centers, shelters, and schools to end hunger in Montana. MFBN’s hunger relief programs include BackPack, Hunters Against Hunger, Mail-a-Meal, No Kid Hungry, Retail Food Rescue, and SNAP outreach. MFBN advocates for long-term policy solutions to strengthen public nutrition programs and address the root causes of hunger.

Mission statement

The mission of Montana Food Bank Network is to end hunger in Montana through food acquisition and distribution, education, and advocacy.


Every $1 donated helps provide at least 4 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 to be a  part of the movement to end hunger in Montana.
