On October 19, 2023, North Country celebrated its 40th anniversary! North Country has proudly served communities and agency partners across its 21-county service area in northwest and west central Minnesota since 1983.

North Country Food Bank is excited to partner with Second Harvest Heartland and all of the Minnesota food banks to work on SNAP Outreach.

Every year, North Country gives out the Hunger Hero Award. This award is the highest honor bestowed by the Food Bank.

Volunteers are thanked effusively by those finding it hard to stretch their finite resources over rising costs. Then, a family of volunteers work hard and get some well-deserved play in Bemidji.

When generosity begets generosity, a little unexpected giving becomes contagious.

A neighbor in line for the mobile food bank shares the resources of the mobile distribution with those unable to attend.
