Montana food pantries.

Those who need help in Montana can contact a food bank or pantry. Support is provided to thousands of families every year. Individuals of all backgrounds, religions, and ages can explore programs that can distribute free emergency food boxes or groceries. A focus of the assistance is on low income, seniors, disabled, and the elderly in the community.

A number of non-profit agencies, churches and other organizations participate in programs such as the Montana Food Bank Network. When someone seeks assistance, they can also learn about longer term solutions that may be available. For example, many centers can help people enroll in government programs such as SNAP food stamps, or help children obtain free summer meals. So look into additional assistance in applying for public nutrition programs.

Each food pantry in Montana will offer its own services, and what exactly is offered will depend on the specific center. Clients may receive everything from perishable items (fruits, vegetables), canned goods (rice and soups) as well as more specialty type items such as baby formula or meals focused on meeting the needs of senior citizens or children.
