Thanks to Amazon’s Generosity, Montana Food Bank Network Is Sending Checks to Partners

Montanans have increasingly relied upon Amazon’s vast online retail delivery, especially in rural areas disproportionately affected by the closure of retail outlets. But now, Montanans have another reason to be thankful for Amazon’s incredible resources. According to the Montana Food Bank Network, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has donated funds that will be trickling down to local food banks.

In an email sent out this morning by the Chief Programs Officer for the Montana Food Bank, Stephanie Stratton, Bezos’ contribution to Feed America will be dispensed to food bank partners.

Stratton wrote, “You may have heard recently that Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, made a very generous gift to Feeding America.  As a member of that network, MFBN received a generous portion of that gift to help with food and distribution. We wanted to find a way to share this generosity with you all in a meaningful way.”

Montana Food Bank Network (MFBN) will be “paying it forward” – literally – to food banks that partner with the state food distributor. 

Stratton continued, “MFBN has decided to use some of these funds to reimburse you for costs incurred through the March-April ordering cycle.”

“We chose to issue refunds to your organization rather than credit your account at MFBN, so that you can decide how to use the funds in a way that benefits your organization and community. We hope this will help you continue to serve your communities now and as we move toward recovery from this crisis.”

Letters containing more details specific to each Partner Agency will be mailed with your refund checks to food bank partners today.

No doubt, this is an unexpected but welcome surprise to the many food banks around Montana that partner with MFBN to receive free or reduced-priced food in bulk to feed the hungry.
