Often unseen, hunger in Helena is real and is a
growing concern for many of our neighbors.

When a community is in need, the community responds.

A new Community Food Resource Center is needed more than
ever to meet the growing need in the Helena area.

We may not know who in our community is facing food insecurity. It could be… 

A retiree living on a fixed income, facing increases in food, rent, and utilities,
or a family needing help to make ends meet at the end of the month.

A grade-schooler who only got one meal over the weekend because there wasn’t enough food in the house,
or a working mom whose paycheck doesn’t cover the cost of food after paying her child’s medical bill.

A dad who was laid off and needs support to feed his family while he’s looking for work,
or a grandmother whose healthcare costs make affording nutritious food a challenge.

A single mom with daycare costs that make it difficult to stretch her income this week,
or a man who finds himself homeless because of chronic health issues.

We can never know all the challenges in life that create food insecurity for one in seven of our neighbors, including one in five kids.
However, we can work to ensure there is a place they can rely on when difficulties come their way.
