How to use the Food Bank in 4 Easy Steps:

Step 1:

When you arrive, we will ask you to fill out a simple information sheet.  Your personal information will remain confidential.

Step 2:

When it is your turn, a Gallatin Valley Food Bank volunteer interviewer will spend a few moments with you to explain how our store works and share information with you about other resources that may be of assistance to you and/or your family.

Step 3:

Based on the number of people in your household you will be given a shopping list and then will be able to select from the choices we have available that day.

Step 4:

Once you have completed shopping our volunteers will help pack your groceries and make sure you have received the allotted amount and will have your groceries boxed for easy transport.

It’s easy!  Please feel free to call ahead if you have any other questions or you can ask any one of our staff or volunteers when you arrive.

Additional things to remember:

  • Our services are intended to supply a 5 day supply of emergency food, and meant to supplement other sources of food.  We will happily provide you with additional information about other resources that may help you stretch your food budget.
  • Please note that you may use our service 1 time every 30 days.
  • If it is your first time, please bring identification for other members in your household such as your child(ren)’s social security number and date of birth.
  • We also have a bread and produce room that is typically available Monday-Friday from 9:30 am- 5pm.  (Opening time is dependent on when our trucks get back from the food rescue route) We generally keep this stocked with produce, bread and dairy when available.  There are no forms to fill out, and you may come as frequently as you and your household needs.
