BISMARCK, N.D. – The Great Plains Food Bank has received a $10,000 grant from the Bismarck-Mandan Community Foundation that will help the state’s largest hunger relief organization serve its clients in the Bismarck-Mandan area and in the western half of North Dakota.
The grant will specifically go toward continued progress made by the Great Plains Food Bank to open a regional service center located in Bismarck-Mandan.
“Each day we get a little closer to the reality of being able to open a regional service center in Bismarck-Mandan and this generous grant from the Bismarck-Mandan Community Foundation is a vital piece of that journey,” Great Plains Food Bank CEO Steve Sellent said. “We thank the foundation for their support in the fight to end hunger.”
The $10,000 grant is part of over $32,000 in grants awarded by the BisMan Community Foundation to five non-profit organizations in the area. Also receiving grants were the Dakota Children’s Advocacy Center, Tracy’s Sanctuary House, Rebuilding Together Greater BisMan Area and the Village Family Service Center.
