Working to End Hunger

We’re honored to be recognized as a Hunger Relief Champion, partnering with Great Plains Food Bank to help end hunger for those in need throughout North Dakota and Minnesota.

Giving That Feeds the Heart and Soul.

Volunteering Organization
Years of Partnership
Volunteer Hours

Through our partnership with Great Plains Food Bank, team members have volunteered in the following ways:

  • Unloading and organizing food

  • Packing items at the main warehouse

  • Serving families through the program

  • Distributing food through the Senior Food Pack program

  • Sorting and distributing food through mobile food pantries

Additionally, we donate $4,000 annually toward a one-week event in March that helps Boy Scouts distribute flyers to make people aware of a large food drive that benefits Great Plains Food Bank. During this time, people can donate items at Gate City Bank locations. Additionally, we’ve donated 1.8 million blue tote bags in total – thousands of them to help transport food to individuals in need.

Hunger Relief Comes to West Fargo.

No one should have to go hungry. That’s why we invested in converting a pop-up food pantry into a permanent hunger relief program in West Fargo, ND – the first of its kind in the community.

Halting Hunger by Hitting the Highway.

At the heart of our relationship with Great Plains Food Bank is our donation of a brand-new delivery semitrailer, made possible with a $250,000 pledge over 10 years. We donated the truck as part of the food bank’s initiative.

“Ending hunger is everyone’s shared responsibility, and it continues to be an honor to support the wonderful mission of Great Plains Food Bank through this unique partnership.”
