FOOD RESOURCE CENTER FOR THE GALLATIN VALLEY

During the past thirty-two years, our Food Bank has grown with the needs of our community and has become a food resource center for Gallatin Valley.  Our program started in a small house on Mendenhall that was donated by the City of Bozeman, we then moved to our former location on Wallace, a 1,950 square foot location, and then moved once again to our current location on Bond Street off of North Rouse.

Our current space is used to house our warehouse, food distribution areas, and commercial kitchen.  The Food Bank acts as the distribution site for area non-profits ordering foods from the USDA or Montana Food Bank Network.  Large quantity food donations received are shared with area non-profits and low-income housing sites throughout Southwest Montana.

In addition to our location off of Rouse, we also have 2 satellite Food Banks; one in Three Forks and one in Big Sky.  The Headwaters Ares Food Bank serves the outlying communities of Three Forks, Logan, and Manhattan and aims to reduce food insecurity in these rural areas. The Big Sky Community Food Bank promotes a vibrant local economy by utilizing community resources to preserve the food security, health and dignity of those in need in the Big Sky area.  For those living in Belgrade, we also offer a pop-up Saturday service at Living Waters Methodist Church, from 11am-12pm.
