Local groups and businesses often sponsor food collection events. Some companies, organizations, and individuals host gatherings at which patrons, employees, or guests are encouraged to donate food.
Businesses, churches, service clubs, and individuals also collect cash contributions. Monetary donations help support food purchases and defray operating costs.
Fundraising events for the food bank occur often in Bigfork, especially in the summer months. One favorite annual event is “Mow Downtown,” which takes place in September. In 2017, 19 teams of spirited lawnmower races raised funds to help support the food bank.
Concerts, movie showings, and entertainment events raise money for the food bank, too.
