Our Mission. The Butte Emergency Food Bank operates with the intention that no individual or family in the community experiences the fear and pain of hunger. Each year we distribute about 1,200,000 pounds of food–canned goods; boxed and bagged food; baby food and formula, diapers, and baby products; milk; bread and bakery items; meat and more–to Butte area residents, about 2800 people each month.

The Butte Food Bank has been in business for over 30 years and received its 501C3 tax exemption in 1992. 2/3s of our funding comes from community support.

Hours of Operation. Call for food between the hours of 9:15-11:15am Mondays through Fridays. Food pick-up is scheduled for 11:30 am. Bread is available at 12:00 noon. For more information, call (406) 782-3814 or emailbuttefoodbankmt@yahoo.com

Our Staff. The Butte Emergency Food Bank is a volunteer operation. All volunteers take great pride in the Food Bank and in their service. They work hard, laugh a lot, enjoy each other’s company, and enjoy giving back to the community. Most volunteers are retired professionals with many skills and talents and a deep and abiding enthusiasm for public service.

Kathy Griffith became the director of the Food Bank in September 2010.  She oversees the programs and the work to be done. They work with a volunteer advisory Board of community professionals to set priorities, long-range plans, policies, and guidelines.

Our Board. Our Board consists of motivated community professionals who generously give time and energy and provide unique perspectives and skills to this agency. For more information on our Board, see our Board & Staff information page.
