The North Valley Food Bank

For the past 25 years, North Valley Food Bank made excellent use of every square inch of space on First Street. In our new location at 251 FLATHEAD AVE. in Whitefish, we are able to  efficiently and effectively help those in need in our community and it is designed to take North Valley Food Bank into the future:

      • Enlarged meat processing center
      • More efficient & safe meat room storage
      • A commercial meat grinder
      • Safer parking and food pick-up
      • Storage for buying food by the pallet rather than by the pound
      • Enlarged food preparation area to sort through vegetables and repackage food items
      • More freezer and cooler capacity
      • Multi-purpose kitchen for education, cooking and food preservation
      • A larger, private business office

North Valley Food Bank has finally outgrown the little white house on First Street where the organization opened their doors 25 years ago. Without enough space for the 343,000 pounds of food that moves through the current distribution center each year, the food bank has built a new, bigger home at Baker Commons on Flathead Avenue near The Wave.
