What We Believe

We believe that providing basic food security lays the cornerstone on which people in need can build lives of greater economic security. We believe that once food security is met, other community service agencies will be more effective in their efforts to help people in need move toward economic security. We believe that feeding those in need is an urgent moral and practical imperative. If Blaine County wants a vibrant economy and a connected community, and if it wants to be prepared for civil or natural disaster, then we believe the County must make a commitment to support a coordinated network that acquires and distributes food to children and neighbors in need.
