City Club Missoula

Nonprofits in Missoula that work to alleviate food insecurity saw big increases in demand during the pandemic, according to leaders from those organizations who spoke at the City Club Missoula forum on Monday.

“We served 36,422 individuals in 2020, which is 20% busier than 2019,” said Aaron Brock, director of the Missoula Food Bank. “It’s by far the busiest we’ve ever been.”

Brock said in 2019, the number of new customers who shopped at the food bank store totaled 8,723. That number spiked to 21,626 in 2020.
