Lack of food impacts approximately 14 percent of Lincoln residents.
We provide healthy food in our pantry and hot, nutritious meals through our wintertime mobile canteen to thousands of individuals and families in need in Lincoln.
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, Wednesday and Thursday 9-4 p.m. and Tuesday and Friday 9-3 p.m., with a produce and bread distribution Tuesdays and Fridays from 10-11 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.
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.
