With the addition of freezers and coolers, Heart Butte Helping Hand will be able to better serve the community with needed food supplies, thanks to funding from the Blackfeet Tribal Council.

Heart Butte Helping Hand food and clothing pantry is excited to receive funding from the Blackfeet Tribal Business Council to purchase freezers and coolers. We have purchased a three-door cooler and a three-door freezer. Previously we had three older model freezers, one of which is probably around 75 years old at least. With these new additions we will be able to serve our community with needed food supplies.

In the past we have received milk and other refrigerated foods with limited space to store them. These will also save on electricity as they are much more efficient. This has been a real boost for our community, and we appreciate the consideration of the Tribal Council in giving to our community and our food pantry.

We are registered through the state as nonprofit, but we are still working on 501 (3) c status.

Heart Butte Helping Hand is in the back area of Ministore LLC at 2461 Heart Butte Road in the old sewing center. We started distributing for Essential Eats in 2018. At that time, we served 75 families and grew to 110 families. During the pandemic we at times have distributed to over 200 families.
