Emergency Food Packs

For people who have gone without food and are in need of quick calories, we offer a special pack of high-calorie food that provides immediate nutrition. We prepare these packs for use by the police department, emergency service providers, God’s Love and other human services organizations in the Helena area that may serve people in urgent need of food.

How to Get Help

Emergency Food Packs are available at Helena Food Share and in partnership with agencies throughout the community (see below).
