Missoula Food Bank & Community Center has two programs to help local seniors get the food they need to age more healthfully.

ROOTS is a monthly grocery delivery (or pick up) program for income-qualifying people aged 60 or older.  On the second Thursday of each month, staple food items are delivered to the doorsteps of seniors who may have transportation or mobility challenges.  Food is also available for pick up, at which time seniors can also shop our Store Program.  Included with pantry staples, MFB&CC supplements ROOTS boxes with fresh produce and supplemental nutrition drinks.

For more information, contact Jessica Harrell, Senior Nutrition & Outreach Coordinator (406) 549-0543 ext. 216 or jharrell@missoulafoodbank.org.

Fresh Food Box Program

Through our Fresh Food Box program, MFB&CC also offers affordable home-deliveries of fresh foods once per month for qualifying seniors and those living with disabilities.  Fresh Food Box offers small or large box options, and can be paid for by check, cash, card, or SNAP.  Learn more about our Fresh Food Box Program here.

Sign up for SNAP Assistance

The Food Bank also provides direct assistance to seniors who wish to enroll in the SNAP program. SNAP is an income-qualifying program that provides additional funds for food on a debit card each month, allowing participants to shop at their local grocery store.
