Our Facility

The Bigfork Food Bank opened in 1983, as a small food pantry, serving 12 families from the old Romain Building which is no longer standing. The new, purpose-built facility, opened in 2015, is the food bank’s fourth home, and host to a variety of community services and activities. The facility includes a walk-in freezer, chest freezers, coolers, ample storage space for staple foods, a small business office area, a welcoming reception area, and our grocery store. The food bank owns a small van that is used to transport purchased and donated food.

Most recently, through the generosity of our community, we have been able to purchase a walk-in cooler, a refrigerated van, and a generator for back-up power during power outages.

Everything at the food bank has been paid for entirely through grants and the community, and the food bank is currently debt-free. Our operations meet or exceed all Flathead County Health Department standards, with an A+ rating in all surveys for the past several years.
