GALLATIN COUNTY — The HRDC’s Gallatin Valley Food Bank understands how much spending money on food can add up quickly, and they want to help families in need during this time.

In addition to their regular food giveaways, the food bank is giving away food boxes through the Farmers Feed Families USDA program.

Each box is twenty-five pounds of food, which will be given out Thursday, August 27, and next Thursday, September 3, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the Peace Lutheran Church in Belgrade.

And anyone is encouraged to participate. There are no qualifications.

"This food is provided through by Congress’s funding, so they should consider this basically a stimulus check in the form of a box of food. So, we encourage anybody who’s in need to please come out and there’s plenty to share," said Jon Horn, operations manager for the food bank.

The food bank is also seeking volunteers to help out with the distributions. For more information, visit here.
