Become A Member Agency
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Member Agency of the Montgomery County Food Bank. Our mission is to eliminate hunger by distributing food and grocery products through a network of nonprofit organizations while increasing community awareness on issues of hunger. MCFB partners with 501(c)(3) not for profit, charitable agencies. Each agency must offer services directly to the ill, needy, or children (under 18 years), free of charge and with no requirement to attend any kind of service. The food must be distributed as an emergency food box or as a meal/snack prepared on site to be consumed on the premises. Contact the Montgomery County Food Bank to discuss your program and determine if a partnership with the Montgomery County Food Bank is right for your organization. If you are interested in becoming a member agency of the Montgomery County Food Bank, you will need to take the following steps:
- Complete and return the Agency Application (Adobe Acrobat file) along with the required attachments. The application process takes approximately 4-6 weeks.
- Copy of Letter of Determination from IRS stating your organization has a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.
- A current certificate of insurance verifying your organization’s general liability coverage.
- List of your Board of Directors and their professional affiliation.
- Operating budget for the current year.
- A brochure (or letter) describing your agency’s services.
- Sample of the average food box or weekly menu.
- Client record-keeping form.
The Services Advisory Committee will review the application at the next scheduled meeting (once a month). An on-site monitoring of the program will be scheduled. The results of the monitoring will be taken into consideration when the application is reviewed. The on-site monitor consists primarily of a safety and sanitation assessment. Your agency will be notified of the committee’s decision. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call MCFB at 936-539-6686. Again, thank you for your interest in the Montgomery County Food Bank. We look forward to forming a partnership to eliminate hunger.
