Food Distribution

Bigfork is the only food bank in the state that provides wood for clients. All wood and labor are donated.

Who supports us?

Local churches take turns providing volunteer assistance to the Bigfork Food Bank.

In operation since 1983, the Bigfork Food Bank distributes both donated and purchased food to more than 190 families in the Bigfork area. As a nonprofit, tax exempt, all volunteer organization, its goal is to provide basic nutritional support to those in need. Families whose average income falls below 150% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines are eligible for food bank assistance. The food bank is supported entirely by community donations; it receives no funding from government agencies or United Way.

Generally, the Bigfork Food Bank is open the first and third Tuesdays of the month from 4PM to 6PM; and the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month from 9AM to 1PM. The food bank is closed on fifth Tuesdays. Special schedules serve holiday clients in November and December. For details, see the calendar.

The Bigfork Food Bank depends on volunteers and community donations.

There is no funding from state or local governments.

100% Community Funded

The Bigfork Food Bank has no paid staff positions. 100% of all donations go directly to the operations and distribution of food.
