Our Gallatin Valley Food Bank celebrated 39 years!

January 15 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Thank you to everyone who has dedicated their time and talents, over the past 39 years, to ensure everyone has enough food to eat! Gallatin Valley Food Bank was established in 1982 by a Bozeman dietician Maggie Price and HRDC Vista Mary Martin.  Maggie Price was the first director of The Gallatin Valley Emergency Food Bank, which operated out of a small house donated by the City of Bozeman on Mendenhall and Third Street. This location also housed the food stamp office. We then moved to our former location on Wallace, a 1,950 square foot building in 1985 and remained there until 2001. We have been at our current location, on Bond Street off of North Rouse ever since.

Ron served as Bozeman’s Assistant City Manager from 1990 to 2008. After retiring, Ron joined our Board in 2011. Ron received his Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Montana in 1977, and his Masters in Science in Rural, Town, and Regional Planning from the University of Montana in 1987.

During his time with the City of Bozeman, Ron saw the important role that HRDC has played in our community. Ron has seen that HRDC provides necessary social services to assure that all Bozeman residents could obtain housing, food, training, employment and the other necessities of life. He also came to understand that HRDC was always able to respond immediately as new community needs arose. Ron believes that the dedication, hard work, and compassion of HRDC’s staff make it a real honor to serve on the Board.

Ron also serves on the Trails, Open Space and Parks Committee for the City of Bozeman, and as a volunteer with the Red Cross. One of Ron’s favorite activities is walking his beloved dog every day, enjoying many of Bozeman’s trails and parks, like Burke Park, Bozeman Creek, and the Hyalite and Mount Ellis areas. Ron and his wife Claire enjoy spending their days with family, friends, and time outdoors.
