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.

The snow is melting! Our parking lot is slowly reappearing!

Today we served 35 families (70 individuals) and distributed 1,871 pounds of food. Needless to say, the volunteers from Crossroads worked really hard! Last Tuesday night we had 14 families (36 individuals) and distributed 1,124 pounds. We were blessed with lots and lots of produce that we were able to share with our clients!

And everyone, remember to mark your calendars for Mother’s Day, May 12th. Wai Mitzutani is doing a free concert for the Food Bank (a love offering will be available) at 3 pm at the Community United Methodist Church. We’ll have refreshments afterward. Please attend – it will be a spectacular afternoon. Take that special lady to lunch, then to the concert!
