MISSOULA – The Missoula Food Bank is still in need of donations for the holiday season to achieve their goal for 2018.

Missoula Food Bank is hoping to raise $250,000 and 55,000 pounds of food by the end of the year.

The executive director of the food bank, Aaron Brock, said that while the food bank is optimistic that they will meet their goal, they still need your help.

He also talked about how giving and charitable the Missoula community is and how that keeps the optimism level high for completing their goal.

Brock says that this is the time of year that the food bank starts to see donations rise and those donations help them continue to operate at such a high level next year

“This is the time of year that our bank account fills up and our warehouse fills up and that keeps us strong well into 2019. So, yes, we are going to have food on our shelves through the end of this year. There is no doubt about that,” Brock said. “This is about asking our community in this time of giving to consider including the food bank in their charitable gifts so that we can continue to do this work. Unfortunately, the need is not going down and we don’t anticipate it to go down in the next year.”

Brock also talked about how great the volunteers are at the food bank and if you would like to donate your time you can find that information on their website along with donation information.
