Volunteers are one of the many backbones at the Great Plains Food Bank. Each year, more than 2,000 individuals generously give their time and energy repacking meals inside our Fargo warehouse, Bismarck regional service center or at our mobile food pantry stops across the region.

VIRTUAL FOOD DRIVE
The Great Plains Food Bank offers a unique way you can play a critical role in the fight to end hunger by hosting your own virtual food drive, individual fundraiser or team fundraiser.
Virtual food drive participants have the chance to select products inside our online “virtual” food drive that directly shows how your donations help Great Plains Food Bank programs and services supply needed food assistance to more than 121,000 hungry individuals each year.
Each dollar we spend to provide needed food assistance to those in need across North Dakota and Clay County, Minn., needs to be fundraised. We depend greatly on all the individual and corporate donors that make our work possible.
If you have the means to give, we are extremely efficient with our operation where for each dollar you donated we can provide three meals for those in need.
We can all play a role in the fight to end hunger and hosting your own food drive is a great way to give back to the communities we serve. Each year, the Great Plains Food Bank will receive more than a half-million pounds of food from food drives held by the public.
If you are interested in hosting you own food drive, let us know.
bECOME A PARTNER
Each year we work with 200 partners across North Dakota and Clay County, Minnesota. Our partners are as strong and diverse as the staff and volunteers who operate them.
This network, comprised of food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, afterschool programs, and other charitable feeding programs, are on the front lines every day distributing the food we supply directly into the hands of hungry children, seniors and working families. They are a vital link in our mission to end hunger as well as the emergency food chain.
