Blackfoot Donates Over $15,000 to Local Food Banks in Honor of Thanksgiving

2016-thanksgiving-adDonations will benefit 20 Western Montana and Eastern Idaho Food bank agencies.

 

Missoula, MT, November 22, 2016 – A long standing tradition at Blackfoot is to assist those in need by donating to food agencies that help provide meals to individuals and families.

Food bank service needs are in high demand, according to the Association of American Food Banks:

  • In Montana, 17.1 percent of adults are food insecure.
  • More than 1 in 4 of Idaho children (27 percent) suffer from food insecurity.

As a locally owned and operated company, Blackfoot remains committed to their service area communities. In 2016, more than $250,000 has been donated to local charitable organizations.
