STRENGTHENING OUR COMMUNITY

LOCAL SUPPORT FOR LOCAL FAMILIES

Skipping dinner, eating less, or eating less well – this is what thousands of people in Gallatin Valley face every day. The Gallatin Valley Food Bank is the critical link between food and the people who need it. Food insecurity impacts people from all walks of life and we reach all of them, from working families to senior citizens.

We're working hard to HELP end hunger in southwestern MONTANA

“GVFB’s purpose, positive community impact, staff and volunteers are why I volunteer. I’ve had the pleasure of working on the Monday afternoon shift since January 2014. Bar none, the Monday afternoon shift volunteers are ‘can-do’ people with fascinating backgrounds and dedicated to helping others. This team rocks!”

“Two+ years have I been here. Really enjoy my fellow volunteers, like a family that gets together once a week over food. And do like the great staff (our team is dedicated to Bethels’ requests, and certainly Donnas’). For me personally, I like helping out others, fortunate or not, and the Food Bank is a great resource for my contribution. Volunteering mitigates ….. un….I forgot… un oh …oh… un…de…men ”

UNDERSTANDING HUNGER

WHAT IS HUNGER AND WHO IS EXPERIENCING IT?

High unemployment and the lingering effects of the recession have pushed record numbers of people in the Gallatin Valley and in Southwest Montana towards food insecurity. Thankfully, people can still count on the Food Bank. While the Gallatin Valley Food Bank is proud of our success helping families in need, we are saddened that so many people continue to need our help. Last year, the Gallatin Valley Food Bank processed 1,984,521.9 pounds of food. This took an extraordinary effort by hundreds of volunteers and dedicated staff and also the generosity of Gallatin Valley and Montanans across the state.
