ONDB PosterMontana Farmers Feeding Montana’s Hungry

A joint project of the Montana Grains Foundation and the Montana Food Bank Network 

In an effort to benefit the less fortunate, the farmers of Montana have an opportunity to donate to the Montana Food Bank Network through a program sponsored by the Montana Grains Foundation.

MGF launched “Our Neighbor’s Daily Bread” in December, 2009, in collaboration with the Montana Food Bank Network, the Montana Grain Growers Association and many of the state’s grain elevators. This effort is a donation project specifically designed to provide the flour necessary to meet Montana Food Bank needs across our state.

The ability to help is extended to any farmer who wants to donate grain or dollars to the project. Those wishing to contribute can do so by visiting with their local elevator manager and informing him of their gifting intentions. Montana elevators have received notice of the coming wheat-to-flour project and are ready to help.

All contributions to “Our Neighbor’s Daily Bread” are managed through the Montana Grains Foundation, a 501(c)(3) foundation and the charitable arm of the Montana Grain Growers Association. For more information or to learn how you can help, please see the information posted below or call the Montana Grain Growers Association at 406-761-4596.
