In a community as close in proximity as we are in spirit, we share a commitment to look out for one another. This sense of community shared by the people of Blaine County is especially important when the going gets tough.
Because of challenges like the high cost of living in our resort community and a lack of affordable housing, we’ve seen record numbers at our food pantry nearly every month this year. As we approach winter, heating costs are on the rise while loneliness deepens with the added pressure to feel connected. I am hopeful that our close, compassionate community will rise to the occasion and stand alongside our neighbors this season.
Join our Good Food Community with a gift to The Hunger Coalition. This community is made up of people from all walks of life who believe healthy food access is a right. The connections we make through growing, cooking, and sharing food lift us up and help us weather our greatest challenges.
Community may be the only force strong enough to overcome hunger. Let’s rally together to ensure everyone has a happy, healthy holiday season.

Your gift of good food has special powers. Not only does it provide immediate relief for a local family, it opens the door to community.
If you believe food is better shared
If you feel no one should face the day alone
If you find that the strongest relationships are forged over a good meal
Give the gift of good food to stand in solidaritywith our friends who have to choose between keeping the heat on or the fridge stocked this season.
