Before Thanksgiving the shelves were practically empty at the Community Cupboard in Baker. Tiffany Davis, Council on Aging Assistant, wondered if there would be any food assistance available to those in need during the holiday season.

Fortunately, numerous individuals, groups and organizations responded to the need. The shelves have been re-stocked and many people received food assistance for the holidays.

“I’m amazed. really amazed,” Davis said. “People who haven’t thought about it or didn’t even know we had a food bank have generously given.”

“There have been a lot of lay-offs lately so we have had an upswing in people needing help,” Davis added.

The Community Cupboard, located at the Senior Citizens Center, is a local food bank program for residents of Fallon County. The items are stocked by food and monetary donations from the community for the community.

The Community Cupboard receives most of its food donations during this time of year, but there is always a need. Anyone can donate anytime at 420 W. Montana Ave., Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed during lunch hours noon to 1 p.m. For more information or questions, contact Tiffany Davis at 406-778-2358 or 406-778-2600
