How You Can Help
Since the Bigfork Food Bank is fully supported by volunteers and donations, we are always looking for assistance and donations. We have all kinds of volunteer opportunities available for individuals and groups throughout the year. Volunteer opportunities can be anything from a regularly scheduled time each week, to a once a year activity. We hold regularly scheduled new volunteer orientations so new volunteers can get an overview of the food bank operations and understand what volunteer opportunities are available. Our goal is to find the best fit for each person interested in volunteering.
You can donate unopened, current-dated, commercially packaged food to the Bigfork Food Bank. The food bank welcomes purchased food items as well as produce from local gardens and orchards. Household essentials such as toilet paper, cleaning supplies, and paper towels are welcome also, as long as they are unopened.
Bring non-perishable donations to our Big Blue Donation Bin located in front of the food bank anytime 24/7. The blue bin is checked at least daily. For perishable items please call the food bank phone number (406) 837-2297 and we’ll work with you to make arrangements for drop off or pick up.
If you or your business or organization is interested in doing a food drive to support the food bank we’d love to talk to you! Please give us a call to discuss (406) 837-2297.
Donate Time and Effort
If you’d like to volunteer your time and talents, the food bank can always use a hand. Volunteers work on regularly scheduled distribution days and at other times throughout the month, when food needs sorting, shelving, or repackaging. Please contact us to find a time when you can help.
