Food Banks were originally intended to fill the gap when households were out of food and resources due to an emergency. Emergency situations (major disasters), are now less than half of our client load. We also serve working poor households whose income does not stretch to cover food expenses, seasonally employed households, older adults living on fixed incomes, as well as households who are temporarily homeless. Levels of long-term unemployment and more frequently underemployment continue to force people with jobs to seek emergency food assistance. More often than not, at least one person in every household we serve has someone currently employed.

From Nov 1 - Jan 1 we will be open on Tuesdays from 2pm until 7pm, and Fridays from 10am - 3pm. (We will return to our regular hours in January, T: 3-7 & F: 11-3)

We will also be offering additional hours during Thanksgiving week-

Monday, Nov. 20, 3-7pm open for Thanksgiving-in-a-Bag pick-up (sign ups available at the Food Bank)

Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2-7 pm open for regular food box service.

Wednesday, Nov. 22, 10 am- 3pm open additional early hours.

Food Bank will be CLOSED Friday, Nov. 24 for Thanksgiving Holiday.

Welcome to the Community Cafe! We are a dinner service restaurant open Sunday through Friday from 5-7 pm. Our Chef, Rick Hilles, is a classically trained chef and he creates one of a kind menu offerings for our patrons every week with your nutrition needs in mind. We are also home to the pay what you can meal deal. We provide the food and experience, and our customers set the price. This, say our customers, is part of what makes the Cafe a place they want to share with friends and visit again and again. The Community Café strives to improve food security throughout the Gallatin Valley. Our Café is a place for community members and families to come together and enjoy delicious food. When possible, our Chef seeks out local products to incorporate into our meals. The Cafe staff works with an army of local volunteers that serve as wait and kitchen staff during dinners.

The "miracle" of Christmas is repeated over and over again through the joy of caring and sharing. The traditional red kettle is an integral part of the Christmas scene, with millions of dollars donated each year to aid needy families, seniors, and the homeless.

Donations and financial assistance provide Christmas dinners, clothing, and toys for families in need, including families of prisoners.

Volunteers distribute gifts to shut-ins in hospitals and nursing homes, and shelters are open for sit-down dinners. The Salvation Army endeavors to bring spiritual light and love to those it serves at Christmas so that the real meaning of the season is not forgotten.

Many families receive aid over a period of months after the Christmas season, as well as people struggling with difficult family, emotional, or employment problems.

Because we want to respond to the varying needs of the communities in which we serve, all of our holiday assistance programs are adm
