Neighborhood Food Program

Neighborhood Food Program Free food for families in need. The Food Bank works with the Center for People in Need to sponsor mobile pantries per week in Lincoln. This program, called Neighborhood FOOD, is held at community gathering places in some of Lincoln’s poorest areas and currently serves approximately 1,300 families per week. On the best of weeks, families take home an assortment of canned food, dry goods such as boxed dinners, frozen meat, salvaged produce and baked goods, and occasional personal care items. These items can serve as valuable income extenders for struggling households.
