Butte Emergency Food Bank operates with the intention that no
individual or family in the community experiences the fear and
pain of hunger. Each year we distribute about 1,200,000 pounds of
food--canned goods; boxed and bagged food; baby food and formula,
diapers, and baby products; milk; bread and bakery items; meat
and more--to Butte area residents, about 2800 people each month.
Butte Food Bank has been in business for over 30 years and
received its 501C3 tax exemption in 1992. 2/3s of our funding
comes from community support.

Butte Emergency Food Bank is a volunteer operation. All
volunteers take great pride in the Food Bank and in their
service. They work hard, laugh a lot, enjoy each other's company,
and enjoy giving back to the community. Most volunteers are
retired professionals with many skills and talents and a deep and
abiding enthusiasm for public service.
Griffith became the director of the Food Bank in September 2010.
She oversees the programs and the work to be done. They work with
a volunteer advisory Board of community professionals to set
priorities, long-range plans, policies, and guidelines.
Board consists of motivated community professionals who
generously give time and energy and provide unique perspectives
and skills to this agency. For more information on our Board, see
