Food Distribution Schedule

The Food Bank of Lincoln is committed to alleviating hunger in Southeast Nebraska. We will continue to feed neighbors facing hunger in the face of circumstances that change on a daily, sometimes hourly basis. We will strive to meet the most pressing needs of as many guests as possible while ensuring the safety of our staff and volunteers. For the safety of all, mobile food distributions will be canceled or postponed during inclement weather. This schedule will be updated as needed. Please check back regularly for updates.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does a mobile food distribution work?

Guests remain in their vehicles and Food Bank staff or volunteers load food into trunks and truck beds. Walk-up service is also available. If walking-up, we recommend bringing a cart or bag to help carry the food. The low-contact, no-contact drive-thru style provides maximum safety for individuals receiving food, as well as for staff and volunteers conducting the distribution.

What do I need to bring?

You do not need to bring any documentation with you. We will never ask for an ID, pay stub, social security card or any other document. We do ask that you please clear space in your trunk or truck bed ahead of time to make room for the food.

Will I need to complete any paperwork?

Yes. Some food supplied by the Food Bank of Lincoln comes from the federal government through a program called The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). This program is part of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Neighbors receiving USDA food are asked to complete a TEFAP form.

Learn more about the form and see an example, here: TEFAP FAQ.

I am picking up food for someone else (or want someone else to pick up food for me). What do I do?

Anyone who cannot complete the TEFAP form in-person will need to complete a proxy form in advance. Only one proxy form per vehicle is allowed. Text messages and notes will no longer be accepted.

Do I need to sign-up in advance?

Nope! Mobile food distributions are open to all.

What happens in the event of inclement weather?

For the safety of all, mobile food distributions will be canceled or postponed during inclement weather. These notices will be communicated on our website, social media channels and main phone line greeting (402) 466-8170. You can find us on Facebook and Instagram: @FoodBankofLincoln and Twitter: @FoodBankLincoln.
