LPS Extra Mile Walk

April 20, 2024 | 10 a.m. | East High School, 1000 S. 70th Street

For many students, school breakfast and lunch are the only meals of the day. For these children and their families, the weekend often creates a food crisis; a weekend can be a long time to go without food.

The Lincoln Public Schools Extra Mile Walk started in 2008 to help raise funds to ensure children and families eligible for the Free or Reduced School Lunch Programs have food to eat during the weekend.

Through School Food Markets and Pantries at 31 LPS schools, about 4,250 students and their families have access to nutritious food and fresh produce each month during the school year. The Food Bank’s BackPack initiative provides food-filled backpacks for 1,113 students at 25 Lincoln Public Schools each Friday during the academic year.

By participating in the walk, you are taking the first step toward fighting hunger and food insecurity in our community.

Want to Help?

Each dollar donated provides about two meals for a neighbor experiencing food insecurity.
