In observance of Indigenous Peoples’ Day, Missoula Food Bank & Community Center is closed Monday, October 11th.

“Indigenous Peoples’ Day is a holiday celebrated on the second Monday of October in the United States, in lieu of Columbus Day. Indigenous Peoples’ Day, at its core, aims to celebrate and honor the past, present, and futures of Native peoples throughout the United States and acknowledges the legacy of colonialism, which has devastated Indigenous communities historically and continues to negatively impact them today. More importantly, however, Indigenous Peoples’ Day moves beyond the narrative of oppression and honors the histories, cultures, contributions, and resilience of contemporary Native peoples.”  IllumiNative, An Advocates Guide to Supporting Indigenous Peoples’ Day

In observance of Indigenous Peoples’ Day, MFB&CC invites our community to take time to listen, learn, and honor the history and resilience of Native and Indigenous people.
