Our mission is to end hunger in Montana.

Hunger’s Hope Awards


The 2013 Hunger’s Hope Award ceremony will take place at the Montana Food Bank Network 30th Anniversary Gala on Thursday, November 14th.


We reserve the Hunger’s Hope Award for our very special friends and organizations that make a difference in the lives of the hungry in Montana.

Their support and generosity has inspired us and deserve to be recognized for their hard work and compassion.  Mayor Engen, of Missoula, will receive our highest honor of the Lifetime Achievement Award for his many years of service to help end hunger in Montana.  Thanks to all our Hunger’s Hope Award recipients for their extraordinary acts of kindness:

  • MAZON Foundation
  • Angora Ridge Foundation, Dan Weinberg
  • Jerry Long, MFBN Volunteer
  • Studio Pandora, Cheryl & Karahan Balli
  • Mayor John Engen
