North Country

North Country Food Bank’s business model is simple: use surplus food products from the food industry to feed hungry people. This enables us to serve 21 counties in northwest and west central Minnesota. We source food nationally, regionally, and locally and bring this food back to our warehouse in East Grand Forks, MN. Then we distribute it to our 220 agency partners that serve individuals struggling with hunger.
