About Us

Our Mission

Gallatin Valley Food Bank’s (GVFB) mission is to improve food security throughout Southwest Montana.

Our vision is to create a healthier, more resilient, food-secure community in which all of the members are empowered and have the means to nourish themselves. We will continue to advocate and support our community through our work, partnerships, and commitment to improving food security.

History

Gallatin Valley Food Bank was established in 1982. By 2001, after moving twice, we moved into our third location on Bond Street off of North Rouse Avenue. This space housed our store and lobby, warehouse, bread and produce room, and garden. For 23 years we used the Bond Street location to function as a food hub for our community. Within that time we began to use off-site storage to help us keep up with the growing need for food assistance in the Gallatin Valley.

In December 2023, we moved into our new home at Market Place, one of the two buildings that will make HRDC’s Community Commons. Market Place includes the Gallatin Valley Food Bank, the Fork & Spoon pay-what-you-can restaurant, senior and childhood nutrition programs, and more. The majority of HRDC staff that work closely with our customers are also now located at Market Place. We are excited to be improving our customers’ experience and strengthening our impact in this new space!
