The Fundraiser is now over, but if you wish to give a financial gift, click here.

Help raise money for our North State Food Bank, one whisker at a time. NovemButte Beard & Stash is a fun month-long fundraiser. Grow your beard and/or stash and raise some cash.


Community Action Agency's North State Food Bank (NSFB) is the hub of a 10,000-square-mile food distribution network that provides food to more than 5,000 individuals who face food insecurity across Butte and beyond. This network is built from a collaborative partnership of more than 50 non-profit, faith-based, volunteer, and community groups that receive donations of NSFB food and share it with their communities. Expanding the NSFB will allow us to expand this network and the impact we make together.

This fundraiser will help fill the gaps from grants to eliminate the need to travel back and forth between leased warehouse spaces, reducing operation costs and improving the effectiveness and collaboration of Food Bank staff, partners, and volunteers.

This expansion project will include the following improvements:

  • The addition of a new loading dock will allow safer and faster loading and unloading of food. We are currently operating without a loading dock.
  • More industrial freezers and refrigeration to allow the Food Bank to receive more meats, milk, produce, and other healthy but perishable foods.
  • A Community meeting space to enhance collaboration around local food systems.
  • A dignity-in-choice pantry will allow vulnerable families to select food their family will actually eat rather than collecting a prepackaged box that may not be suitable for their needs. This will reduce waste and promote dignity during tough times.

Butte Beard and Stash Bash Event

Whether you're a grower, donor, voter, or friend, you can come to our Butte Beard and Stash Bash event at Sierra Nevada's Big Room. It will be a night of live music with the Kelly Twins Dueling Pianos, drinks, and silent auction to support our community.


Butte Beard and Stash Bash has passed, but stay tuned for what fundraiser event we will have next year!
