Week 3: Ready to Stay at Home?

October 03, 2016

1785 meals added by Feed Montana Homecoming Tailgate!   

Have you visited the tailgate yet? Whether you go to the game or not, the MFBN tailgate is a great place to meet up with your team and have some pizza and beer! We supply 2 types of beer, one light, one local craft and MacKenzie River Pizza all for donations. 

We will be at all the remaining October home games. Find us in front of the Adams Center and help us Feed Montana!

 

Invite your team or workplace to get involved and

Stay at Home!

The Stay At Home drive is a fun and easy way for EVERY ONE to get involved, because let's face it, who doesn't love wearing their comfy shoes and staying at home instead of attending another event.

This is another great event to get involved in if your team still has not decided what they want to do! We have all the materials for you to send out to your friends and invite them to stay at home to Feed Montana!

Just contact Cassidy (see information below) if you would like the materials!

A special Thank You goes out this week to the Good Food Store! They helped us kick off the Feed Montana and sponsored with 7,500 meals! They are always supporting the work we do here at MFBN through events and our love of local sourced healthy foods. We are so thankful to have them as partners in the fight against hunger in Montana!

Weeks 2: Help us get to 50%

September 26, 2016

We are sitting at just under 50% to our goal, in week 2!! 

 

Last week we saw the Loose Caboose Cup of Kindness skyrocket through social participation. Almost 3,000 people came out to help support our cause resulting in a $700 or 2,100 meal event! Thank you for all those that came out and helped spread the word. 

Ready to get your team or workplace involved?

This week is an easy sell to get your team and/or workplace involved in joining the campaign! On Friday, just in time to compliment your Griz wear, the Missoulian is holding their Jeans Day Fundraiser to Feed Montana! Just a $5 donation made either to the Missoulian or at feedmt.org and spend Friday in comfort with your blue jeans to show your support. You can find all the information and help invite or spread the work through our event here. 

 

This week is homecoming in Griz Nation and this makes it even easier to up your team or workplace game. Hold a competition for who can show the most Griz spirit - entries or votes can be made by donations to Feed Montana.

Or invite your Griz friends and fans to tailgate with the Montana Food Bank Network!

Every home game in October, Feed Montana is set up in front of the Adams Center armed with beer and pizza! With generous donations from Summit Beverage and MacKenzie River Pizza we are able to provide all you can eat pizza and beer for donations. That's right, whatever you can donate, and you have lunch and refreshments to get you through the game! Find us in front of the Adams Center this Friday and every home game throughout the campaign. Go Griz!!

A special Thank you goes out to one of our great Feed Montana sponsors, Element Physical Therapy! This is the second year they have been involved with Feed Montana and we are so thankful to have them involved in the campaign. They have already donated 15,000 meals to Feed Montana! Thank you Element!!

Week 1 - 25% of goal!

September 19, 2016

We have already reached a quarter of our goal! One week down, six more to go!

Thanks to many generous sponsors, donors, and ambitious Food Fight teams we have already raised just over 50,000 meals to Feed Montana. 

As exciting as this it, our work is just beginning. The next 6 weeks are packed full of activities that teams and the Montana Food Bank Network have set up that you can get more involved & help Feed Montana. 

This week we are featuring the Cup Of Kindness Fundraiser that the Loose Caboose team is holding on Tuesday, Sept 20 (pssst... that's tomorrow!). For every cup of coffee sold at any Loose Caboose location a portion of the proceeds will be donated to MFBN to Feed Montana! 

Here you will find our calendar of events for the entire campaign. 

Most of our events can also be found on our Facebook page and you can always contact Cassidy Green, the Feed Montana Coordinator at cgreen@mfbn.org for any questions or to ask how you can get involved in Feed Montana! 

This week we wanted to highlight and send a big THANK YOU to Northwest Farm Credit Services for being an MVP sponsor for the second year in a row! Last year, NWFCS not only sponsored but also engaged their employees got into the Food Fight team with a Grizzly vs Bobcat team! The competition was fierce until the very end. They have already raised 30,000 meals, we are looking forward to seeing these 2 teams come alive again! 

2016 Feed Montana

September 09, 2016

And we are off! Another great season is here and it is time to Feed Montana! 

The Montana Food Bank Network along with the University of Montana and NorthWest Farm Credit Services come together again to engage Montana businesses and community organizations to Feed Montana. 

This seven week fundraising campaign focuses on raising awareness and funds for the 1 in 7 people living in Montana that are struggling to put food on their table. Our goal is to raise 200,000 meals by October 31st.

How are we going to achieve this lofty and audacious goal? With a Food Fight! Not a literal food fight (because that would be stepping backwards to meeting our goal), but a virtual food fight between businesses and organizations throughout our great state that don't mind rolling up their sleeves, putting the creativity cap on and stepping out in their community. 

It is not too late! YOU can sign up a team and join our community to Feed Montana

Some teams are selling shirts, others are holding a Radio-A-Thon. Some are strapping on their skates, others are collecting food. We have hundreds of ideas! We just need you to help us connect the pieces! It is Montana communities coming together to support the community of Montana. Want some more ideas? Here is our Food Fight Tips & Tricks!
