Food insecurity is a heartbreaking struggle that affects 14 percent of the Omaha metro.

Our food pantry at the Burrows Center for Help and Hope fills approximately 11,000 grocery orders each year, ensuring that individuals and families are able to put nutritious food onto their tables and into their bodies.

 

"The Salvation Army has seen me through a lot of hard times."

When Sandra Ybarra moved from Oklahoma to Omaha with her gravely ill newborn son, Manny, who needed long-term treatment at Nebraska Medicine, The Salvation Army helped Sandra find safe, stable housing. Sandra also found help at the Burrows Center pantry, which provided healthy food, including fresh produce, when she struggled to make ends meet. Today Manny is 8 years old, healthy and thriving, and Sandra is pursuing a nursing degree at Metropolitan Community College. "The Salvation Army helped us get to where we are today," she said.
