Since the Great Falls Community Food Bank is not a direct provider of emergency food assistance, we frequently get requests for referrals to food pantries. Here is just a partial list of organizations that do provide emergency food assistance:
- Opportunities, Inc., 1123 Central Avenue, 216-2300. Assistance to families in emergency situations when no other services/resources are available to include: food referrals, medical/dental/vision prescriptions, clothing, household items, rental assistance, travel and/or lodging.
- Salvation Army Social Service Center, 527 9th Avenue South, 761-5660. Emergency food, clothing and household goods vouchers for Thrift Store, emergency utility assistance, emergency rent assistance.
- St. Vincent de Paul Social Services, 426 Central Ave. West, 761-0966. Referral by Opportunities, Inc. Walk-ins accepted on Friday only.
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Food Stamps, 20 Crop Growers Dr. 454-5640. Provides eligible households an opportunity to obtain a more nutritious diet by supplementing their food budget.
