Food Collection Events
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. For example, in the “Mow Downtown” event that took place in September 2017, the 19 teams of spirited lawnmower races raised funds to help support the food bank.
Other Fundraising Events
Concerts, movie showings, and entertainment events raise money for the food bank, too.
For example, violin master Wai Mizutani and his students have often presented good-will concerts on special occasions to raise money for the food bank.
