Happy holidays from the Great Plains Food Bank
2019 was another fantastic year at the Great Plains Food Bank helping to feed hungry children, seniors and families across North Dakota and western Minnesota.

It was all made possible thanks to our dedicated volunteers, food and financial donors, partners and advocates doing all they can in the fight to end hunger.

Client Spotlight: Thomas Rude
Thomas Rude is a United States Army veteran living in Rugby. Both he and his wife struggle with medical issues and see their cupboards become bare toward the end of most months attempting to get by on a fixed income.

We caught up with Thomas as he eagerly awaited a stop of the Great Plains Food Bank Mobile Food Pantry, which provides the couple a necessary means to get by.
