Volunteers at Food Bank

About The Butte Emergency Food Bank

The Butte Emergency Food Bank operates with the intention that no individual or family in the community experiences the fear and pain of hunger. Each year we distribute about 1,300,000 pounds of food–canned goods; boxed and bagged food; diapers; milk; bread and bakery items; meat and more–to Butte area residents, about 2,700 people each month.

Our Staff

The Butte Emergency Food Bank is a volunteer operation. All of our volunteers take great pride in the Food Bank and in their service. They work hard, laugh a lot, enjoy each other’s company, and enjoy giving back to the community. Most volunteers are retired professionals with many skills and talents and a deep and abiding enthusiasm for public service.
