The Gallatin Valley food bank stayed busy this holiday season serving nearly 3,800 people in just under 1,800 households.
The Holiday season is the busiest time for donations and the food bank was able to build up a reserve of food for January and February. The reserve is important because in the beginning of the year donations drop as does the number of volunteers. Of course, the need for food remians.
"We really do service an average of 70 households every afternoon, on our busiest days we're up to 120-130 households looking for emergency food assistance... needs we're responding to on a daily basis." says Tim Trzinzki of teh Gallatin Valley Food Bank.
Right now, the food bank needs food, money and volunteers.
