At the Great Plains Food Bank, we want to make food assistance as accessible as we can for our clients throughout North Dakota and Clay County, Minn. The same holds true for our website.
We have added the Recite Me toolbar to further our commitment to ensure as many hungry individuals as possible have the information they need to access the food assistance they need. All are welcome and all can make a difference in the fight to end hunger.
