Gay Peterson

Gay is from Butte and was raised with a keen awareness that we are all responsible for each other in this world. A “community” is not a place where we live, but a way of life in which we are all connected. Gay has been lucky & blessed in this life, and wants to give back to those less fortunate. For her, volunteering is the best way she can help others & truly be part of the community of Missoula.

Why is Missoula Food Bank important to the community? Missoula Food Bank provides the most basic, important need for survival. It is an honor to volunteer for the Food Bank, both in the store and on the Board.
