Chinook Food Pantry
|The Chinook Food Pantry received a competitive grant of $3,000 from the Blaine County Community Foundation Fund at Montana Community Foundation.
While the big grants often garner most of the attention, they are few and far between and certainly no more important than the hundreds of smaller grants made each year.
One such grant we know made a huge impact on a Montana community went to the Chinook Food Pantry in the amount of $3,000. Approximately 25 percent of the population in Blaine County receives assistance from the Food Pantry, showing just how vital funding is for the organization and community. The Food Pantry was one of three organizations receiving competitive grants from the Blaine County Community Foundation Fund, a fund originally established by Warren Ross. Ross was a rancher from Blaine County and former MCF board member who left an incredible legacy to benefit Blaine County forever.
