The need for food assistance is very high throughout the state of Montana. Through nearly 200 partner agencies the Montana Food Bank Network distributes over eight million pounds of food annually. Chief Executive Officer, Peggy Grimes says recently they received a generous anonymous  donation of $250,000.

The MFBN’S administrative costs are just 6 % of the budget, which means 94 cents of every dollar goes toward program work to end hunger in Montana.
