1 Community Builders: Montgomery County Food Bank

The Montgomery County Food Bank was established in 1985 when several concerned citizens realized the need to address the hunger crisis in our community and began distributing food to those in need from the trunk of a car. Now, over 30 years later, the Food Bank is headquartered out of a 60,000 square-foot warehouse and partners with approximately 70 distribution sites across the county. Over 25,000 people in the community are served by the Food Bank each month. MCFB strives hard to fulfill their vision of “a community where everyone has access to sufficient, nutritious food.”
