We believe hunger is a solvable problem.
Montana No Kid Hungry collaborates with communities around healthy food solutions to curb hunger today,
while also cultivating systemic change alongside community leaders to end hunger for the future.





1. Every child in our state, no matter who they are or where they live, gets three nutritious meals a day to grow up happy, healthy and thriving.

2. Healthy, culturally meaningful food is recognized as a critical foundation for Montana kids that must be prioritized within our local agricultural, healthcare, education and governing systems.

3. Decision making power in our communities is shared equally between conventional leadership and people with lived experience to ensure effective, long-term solutions to hunger and poverty.




We believe in the power of Food and Community.

To lift spirits, change lives, and build a stronger Montana for all of us.

From our First Nations and Family Farms, to our Modern Hubs —

Food and Community anchor our past, remind us who we are today, and give us hope for tomorrow.

We believe every Montanan has a right to eat food that nourishes both body and soul, and that every Montanan should have a say in how the future unfolds for their families and neighborhoods.

Hunger and Poverty don’t have to exist.

We can reimagine a better system where Healthy Food and Community Power lead us forward — Together.
