Bank The Helping Hands Food Bank is keeping pre-made boxes ready for clients. They have expanded their hours to serve the community daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this month.


Helping Hands is incredibly grateful for the community support during these unprecedented times. We are doing our best to implement protocols that keep community members, both customers and volunteers, safe.

As such, we have closed our waiting room and switched to pre-made boxes for our emergency food program.

Our hours have also expanded to 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day through March, to help decrease the number of customers at once.

Volunteers from Bighorn Valley Health Center and the Pretty Eagle Jesuit Volunteers have offered their time to help pack boxes, ensuring households and elders are continuing to be fed. Without their help we could not continue to serve during this challenging time. We are so thankful for all those willing to donate time, food, and support over these next few weeks.
