What We Do

North Valley Food Bank provides food assistance to more than 1000 people weekly through our free client-choice model grocery store in Whitefish and mobile pantries in Essex, Olney and Trego. In addition to the customers served directly, North Valley Food Bank serves as a food hub for NW Montana and runs pantry deliveries to FAST Blackfeet in Browning, the Bigfork Food Bank and rural pantries in the Yaak, Eureka, Libby, and Troy.

North Valley Food Bank has a licensed commercial kitchen space on-site. Through our community kitchen programming, North Valley Food Bank transforms rescue food into meals, processes local food, hosts nutrition education for families and provides pathways to self-sufficiency for food entrepreneurs in our communities.
