Lack of food impacts approximately 14 percent of Lincoln residents.
We provide healthy food in our pantry and nutritious meals to thousands in Lincoln who struggle to get enough to eat.
We welcome anyone in need who walks through our doors, including the homeless, people down on their luck and in need of a little extra help, and families struggling to feed their growing children. Our food nourishes the bodies, and our compassion nourishes the spirits of those we serve.
Our food pantry is open Monday through Friday from noon to 4 p.m., with a produce and bread distribution Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 to 11 a.m. The pantry serves more than 8,000 individuals each year who are homeless, at risk of being homeless, or low-income by providing a selection of nutritious food. Individuals and families are able to choose the foods most appropriate for their particular needs.
Kids Cruisin' Kitchen & Kids Café
During the summer when many kids are out of school and not eligible for free or reduced lunches, Kids Cruisin' Kitchen mobile food distribution service offers free meals Monday through Friday at multiple locations around the city, including area parks and elementary schools.
Children and teens enrolled in our after-school program and summer day camps enjoy nutritious daily meals and snacks at the Kids Café.
Together, Kids Cruisin' Kitchen and Kids Café serve more than 4,600 kids in Lincoln annually.
Winter Night Watch
Winter Night Watch makes frigid nights safer and a little more bearable for the homeless and near-homeless in Lincoln. The mobile food distribution service is stationed at The Gathering Place Saturday and Sunday nights from October through April to provide a hot meal and beverages, as well as winter outwear to people in need. Winter Night Watch serves nearly 10,000 meals during the six months it operates each year.
