Missoula Food Bank & Community Center has two programs to help local seniors get the food they need to age more healthfully.
ROOTS is a monthly delivery (or pick up) program for income-qualifying people aged 60 or older. On the second Thursday of each month, staple food items are delivered to the doorsteps of seniors who may have transportation or mobility challenges. Food is also available for pick up, at which time seniors can also shop our Store Program. Included with the pantry staples, MFB&CC supplements ROOTS boxes with fresh fruits and vegetables and Ensure nutrition supplement drinks.

The Food Bank also provides direct assistance to seniors who wish to enroll in the SNAP program. SNAP is an income-qualifying program that provides additional funds for food on a debit card each month, allowing participants to shop at their local grocery store.
