A Message from Big Sky Community Food Bank
Big Sky Community Food Bank has received grant funding from all of the major community foundations in Big Sky to supplement our social services programming. The Yellowstone Club Community Foundation has supplied funding to enhance the coat room, providing a greater selection of warm winter wear, toiletries and cookware. The Moonlight Community Foundation is supporting the food rescue program expansion to partner with several Big Sky restaurateurs for individual-sized microwave meals. And the Spanish Peaks Community Foundation has helped us increase our social services to include a fund for transportation and housing support for our clients. We would like to thank the councils and supporters of these community organizations!
This week we’re looking for volunteers to help process our spring canned food purchases. We’re also looking for Big Sky community members to support the U.S. Postal Service’s annual food drive. It happens every spring and it’s called Stamp Out Hunger. People leave canned food for the letter carriers to pick up to take to the local food bank. Our local postal service friends have supported this effort in the past by providing a food drop off in the Big Sky Post Office. This year, we’re hoping to do a cash-drive, direct-mail campaign instead. We’re working on the details this week, though the effort is not happening until mid-May.
