Locations and Hours

Need help with groceries?

Helena Food Share is here to help. It's simple! It's welcoming!

Asking for help can be hard. Every person who comes through our doors will be treated with dignity and respect.

  1. Visit the Pantry during operating hours with a photo ID and a second form of ID.
  2. Check in at the front desk. A trained volunteer or staff member will help you complete a short intake form. All your information will be kept confidential.
  3. A volunteer will briefly explain how to shop our pantry. Grab a cart, shopping list (based on family size) and start choosing food to nourish your family.

No income verification required.
