Helena Food Share was founded in 1987 to help provide emergency food to our neighbors who face hunger. Families come to our pantry because they are facing difficult times and need help while they experience difficulty paying medical bills, struggling with a disability, finding their way through a layoff, or they're simply doing as best they can to make ends meet with a low or fixed income. No matter their situation, we are dedicated to serving them with dignity and respect and providing them with emergency food to help them through.
Our main pantry in Helena is the home of over a dozen programs uniquely designed to reduce hunger in our community, and you make each of those programs possible! Your generosity makes many things happen here at Helena Food Share, including...
? providing emergency food for 1,500 local families each month,
? serving over 520 elementary school students through our Kid Packs program every week through the school year,
? distributing over 5,000 pounds of food to our clients per day,
? giving over 1,200 volunteer hours to make our programs possible every month,
? keeping our doors open so we can serve our clients with dignity and respect to give them hope.
It takes a whole community to make our programs possible, so every dollar you give, every can of food you donate, and every hour of volunteer time you commit to makes a difference for our friends and neighbors who need to visit our pantry.
You make it possible for us to strive to eliminate hunger in our community.
