Food-A-Thon In Bozeman

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

For the sixth year, Town and Country, the Gallatin Valley Food Bank and ABC/FOX Montana are asking people to help feed the hungry.

The Food-A-Thon food drive is a way for the community to show their support for the food bank and help those in need. Since 2008, the food drive has raised over 34,000 pounds of food.

Organizers said any donation helps out a family or individual in need.

"We're at the point where we're having to purchase food, but the reality is the donations that we get through the community like events like the Food-A-Thon allow us to continue to put a variety of really healthy items onto the shelves," said Lori Christenson, Gallatin Valley Food Bank Program Manager.

The event will take place on Friday from 12 - 3 p.m. at the Town and Country locations on 19th and 11th in Bozeman.
