One in eight (11.8 percent) Montana residents live in households that can’t always afford enough food. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) funds a toll-free hotline to make it easier for those in need to access food from both private and governmental resources.

The hotline can be reached at 1-866-3-HUNGRY or 1-877-8-HAMBRE (for Spanish) from Monday through Friday (6am to 6 pm).

Another invaluable resource is the Gallatin County Food Bank.
