The HRDC's Gallatin Valley Food Bank will have two drive-up locations this week where they will be distributing food boxes from the Farmers Feed Families USDA program for anyone who needs one.

The 25lb boxes come with fresh produce from farms throughout the country, packed by a produce distributor, and shipped to food banks all over Montana through funding from the Coronavirus Relief Act.

The program helps farmers sell products that, due to COVID-19, weren’t being purchased by the intended buyers, and to get the food to those most in need.

Here Are The Two Pickup Locations This Week:

Tuesday, August 25, 9 - 10 a.m.

Gallatin Valley Mall, Bozeman

______

Thursday, August 27, 3 - 4:30 p.m.

Peace Lutheran Church, 203 Jackrabbit Lane, Belgrade

We are attempting to reach those who may struggle with transportation or the current hours of distribution,” says Jill Holder, Food and Nutrition Director for HRDC. “Outreach continues to be an important part of responding to the need in our community.

Please Note: Another food distribution of the Farmers Feed Families USDA food boxes is scheduled for September 3, from 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm at the Peace Lutheran Church located at 203 Jackrabbit Lane, in Belgrade.

In addition to the Gallatin Valley Food Bank's main location off of Rouse at 602 Bond Street, they also operate 2 satellite Food Banks; one in Three Forks and one in Big Sky.  The Headwaters Area Food Bank serves the outlying communities of Three Forks, Logan, and Manhattan. The Big Sky Community Food Bank serves Big Sky and residents living along the 191 corridors.

The Gallatin Valley Food Bank serves an average of 1,195 households in Bozeman and Belgrade. Roughly 30% of these recipients are children, according to the GVFB.
