I'm very disappointed in the lack of transparency of the operation and finances of the Billings Food Bank. There have refused to share details of their operations with other local agencies and they continually post inaccurate information on their website. As an example, they do NOT provide food to at least six (probably many more) of the agencies listed on their website. Yet, they refuse to remove the names, even after numerous requests.

The Billings Food Bank is a phenomenal organization that serves the largest county in Montana. It distributes more than 7 million pounds of food to support agencies who deal directly with the hungry. Even with all of the amazing services it provides, it operates on less than 2% of its budget for salaries and fund raising expenses. It is an amazing model of how a food bank should be run.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

It has been a pleasure to watch this organization build a food secure building, which also is home to a commercial kitchen that is used for training culinary students and is available to entrepreneurs at a minimal cost.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would host more functions at the new building so the general public could get first-hand knowledge of the depth and breadth of the operation.
