Grow Montana supports the following bills in the 2023 Legislative Session:

Farm to Food Bank Bill (HB 276): This program, with state support, would provide funding to local food pantries to purchase and distribute fresh, local products from Montana farmers and ranchers. Creating a new market for local producers, the Farm to Food Bank program would support local food economies, increase food security in Montana, and get fresh products to consumers who may otherwise not have access.
