Please do not unsubscribe if you would like to receive donation receipts or any other information from us in the future via email. This weekly message is a temporary schedule while things are changing so rapidly. You may contact us to be removed from this particular list if you would like.
Thanks to our donors' generosity, we have been able to form new partnerships in order to extend our reach to help our hungry neighbors. Christ the King parish donated frozen fish and mac and cheese left from a couple of canceled fish-fries which we were able to use. We were also able to share some with the pantry at Claire Memorial United Methodist Church who provides 200 pantries a week for their neighbors.

This week our new partners with Support Your NEighbor COVID-19 were featured on WOWT . They are picking up food boxes from our pantry and delivering them to vulnerable people who should not be out of the house. They are building for us a process for handling individual deliveries which we plan to continue after the current crisis . One of our new delivery sites is Evans Tower on north 24th Street. Combining efforts of our pantry volunteers and the sandwich-makers at Holy Family, we are able to deliver 20 pantries each week and 20 sack lunches each day to residents of the Tower.

We are still handing out around 180 pantry bags/boxes, which is double our previous amount.

Monetary donations to the pantry are still the best way to help as we are now having to purchase much of the food we distribute. The Food Bank of the Heartland is still very low on food and we are trying to expand our service to those who can't or should not leave their homes.

Cash donations offer the most flexibility but food donations are also appreciated and can be brought to the pantry at 2101 Leavenworth St. or to any of our store locations. Please call first to make sure someone is there to receive you.

Distribution days are still Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00am - 12:30pm. Though it is drive through style, you may have to exit your car and pick up a box from a table if you don't have a trunk available.

We are so grateful for your continued support during this difficult time.

Our thrift stores remain open and they are still accepting donations. Now you can also drop off food donations for our pantry at any of our stores. We collect them every day and bring them to the pantry.
We are also still picking up donations at your home. Call 402-341-1688 Mon - Fri 9:00 - 5:00 to schedule a pickup.

To volunteer in our stores, email   and we’ll contact you about available dates.

Thank you to Big Garden , who brought soil and compost this week to prepare the beds for our Churchyard Garden at Holy Family. We will be ready for our growers next week!
