Grocery Donations 

Through our Grocery Rescue Program, our network partners rescue non-sellable product and give it a home. These products provide food pantry visitors with fresh foods that are nutritious, but sometimes more difficult to afford.

America’s dumpsters should not be better fed than its people. 

-Dan Glickman 

In 2021, we facilitated partnerships between 80 stores and 44 of our network partners to rescue 9 million pounds of food!  

Montana Food Bank Network monitors network partners and provides food safety training to make sure that the food is kept safe for consumption. Additionally, network partners are specially trained to know how long a product can be consumed past its sell-by date. 


  • Produce, meat, beverages, bakery, dairy, dry food, deli, and prepared foods and non-food items such as hygiene products, pet food, etc.  
  • We cannot accept recalled products, spoiled food, products without ingredients lists, or perishables returned by a customer. 


  • Albertsons, Costco, Loaf ‘N Jug, Reynolds Market, Sam’s Club, Smith’s, Target, US Foods, Walmart, and WinCo.
