Feeding America

Overview

The Food Bank of Lincoln is a proud member of Feeding America. Since our founding in 1982, we’ve been focused on our mission to alleviate hunger in Southeast Nebraska.

From sun up to sun down (and even longer), our dedicated team and partner agencies work together to put food on the tables of those in need, right here at home.

We serve 16 counties in Southeast Nebraska. They are: Polk, York, Fillmore, Thayer, Butler, Seward, Saline, Jefferson, Saunders, Lancaster, Gage, Otoe, Johnson, Pawnee, Nemaha and Richardson.

We’re always looking for people who share this passion; to advocate on our behalf or join our team. Read more about the impact of our good work in our stories of change and stay up on the latest news in our publications.
