How to Use our Food Bank

How to use the food bank in three easy steps:

Step 1:

Asking for help can sometimes be difficult to do but getting food at our food bank store through our emergency food box program is free, simple, and confidential. When you arrive, we will ask you to fill out a simple information sheet. Your personal information will remain confidential. Include members of your household, except for roommates. Roommates need to fill out their own forms.

Step 2:

When it is your turn, a Gallatin Valley Food Bank volunteer will spend a few moments with you to explain how our store works and share information with you about other resources that may be of assistance to you and/or your family.

The number of people in your household will determine the quantities of each item you shop for.

Step 3:

Once you have completed shopping, our volunteers will weigh your cart out and you will be good to go!

It’s easy! Please feel free to call ahead if you have any other questions or you can ask any one of our staff or volunteers when you arrive.

Additional things to remember:

  • Please note that you may use our store once every 2 weeks. If you need extra help, please let our staff know.

  • There is no eligibility criteria to shop in our store.
  • Our services are intended to provide a 5-day supply of emergency food and meant to supplement other sources of food.  We will happily provide you with additional information about other resources that may help you stretch your food budget.
  • We will do our best to accommodate food allergies and sensitivities. Please let the staff know if you need to make substitutions.
