Ending Hunger Together
With 90 percent of the land in North Dakota dedicated to agriculture production, we want to do our part to feed those that feed the world. Those living in rural populations are faced with unique challenges such as limited resources, often no grocery story or needing to travel 30 miles to a food pantry that might only be open once a month. But this is where neighbors come together to help one another. Sensing a direct need here, the Great Plains Food Bank created its mobile food pantry to bring food directly to the hands of rural individuals in need.
According to the North DakotaCensus Office, NEARLY 75 PERCENT OF THE COUNTIES IN NORTH DAKOTA ARE CLASSIFIED AS COMPLETELY RURAL.
The Great Plains Food Bank remains committed to doing all we can to serve those with limited access to food assistance.
The Great Plains Food Bank currently serves rural populations through each one of our nine programs and services.
• Network of partner food pantries.
• Mobile food pantry.
• Senior food pack program.
• SNAP outreach.
• Backpack program.
• Youth summer meals program.
• School pantry program.
• Diaper Bank Network membership.
• Ending Hunger 2.0.
