At the Gallatin Valley Food Bank, we believe that everyone should have access to healthy food. Learn about the different ways that GVFB is not only working to increase food security, but to increase access to healthy, locally grown foods.

Grow-A-Row 

Fresh produce is an essential component of a healthy diet but is not always accessible to someone on a tight budget. Grow-A-Row is an excellent opportunity to bridge community, build relationships, and provide our clients with fresh, local produce. With the start of the growing season, we’re looking for gardeners to donate some of their garden produce to the food bank. By choosing to Grow-A-Row for the food bank, your effort ensures that the under-served in our community have access to high-quality produce

Produce Preparation and Distribution

Please wash or rinse any excessive dirt from the produce.

Donation Times

Our warehouse is open from 8 am-5 pm Monday-Friday and Tuesday evenings until 7 pm.  Donations can be accepted anytime during those hours.  There is no need to call ahead.

GVFB Gardens

Did you know the Gallatin Valley Food Bank has gardens of its own? We always need help keeping them maintained. Whether you have gardening experience or not, there are many ways you can get involved in the GVFB Gardens. Volunteer opportunities include weeding, watering, planting, harvesting, and general maintenance from April to October. Check out our volunteer opportunities HERE.

Learning Garden

The Gallatin Valley Food Bank is excited to share with you an innovative program to expand gardening opportunities in our community that is now underway. We have committed to developing and managing a quarter acre Learning Garden in the new Story Mill Community Park. In anticipation of the park being completed by Summer 2019, GVFB has utilized two years of Americorps VISTA to develop partnerships, build curriculum and programming and pilot two seasons of the Learning Garden Program. This program is the latest addition to meet GVFB’s mission and reach an audience that currently has limited opportunities to engage in the community and will teach skills related to gardening, self-reliance, nutrition, land stewardship, and food security. Learn more HERE.
