Helping Farm Hands
By Flathead Beacon Staff
Non-profit organization improves community food access through new programs
Agriculture enjoys a celebrated history in Montana, where the act of cultivating the land and producing fresh food is a tradition that continues to thrive today.
But gaining easy access to nutritious meals presents another set of challenges, a reality that prompted a local community organization to roll out a growing stable of programs to improve residents’ food needs.
The nonprofit group is called Farm Hands: Nourish the Flathead, whose goal is to address food-access issues by using local agriculture to feed under-served populations.
The group was started 10 years ago by a coordinated group of volunteers, and it runs multiple programs to assist with residents’ food needs, including farm-to-school projects and backpack programs that send children home from school with food.
