The Big Sky Community Food Bank opened in 2012 as a partnership between Big Sky community members and the Human Resource Development Council district IX.
We serve the Big Sky workforce and community members by providing free emergency food and social services. We work alongside the grocers, kitchens, volunteers and other service-oriented organizations of Big Sky to serve an average 900 households every year. Additionally, we help customers navigate a wide variety of social services on a case-by case basis.
Big Sky Community Food Bank is a community centered and welcoming safe space to receive sustenance, tools for independence, hope and connection with one another. As a program of The HRDC, we can support customers in a wide variety of ways according to their individual situations.
