Our food pantries serve low-income and homeless individuals and families, offering canned and baked goods and fresh fruits and vegetables. We fill more than 100,000 grocery orders each year, ensuring that men, women and children across Nebraska, South Dakota and western Iowa can gather around their tables for a nutritious meal, rather than go to bed with an empty stomach.
In cities, towns and rural communities across the Midwest, people who might not otherwise know where they'll get their next meal gather to enjoy free, nutritious lunches and dinners at our community meal programs. Many, especially older adults who often struggle with loneliness and isolation, benefit not only from the food, but from the social connection with friends and peers as well.
Because the homeless and hungry are especially vulnerable during the harsh winter months, our mobile food distribution program Winter Night makes multiple stops at areas where the homeless congregate to distribute a warm meal and a hot beverage to anyone in need. Our summer mobile lunch program Kids Cruisin' Kitchen distributes nutritious lunches to school-aged children who might otherwise go hungry during the summer months when they don't have access to a free or reduced school lunch program.
