Food Pantry

Providing nourishing food for individuals and families experiencing hunger.

Addressing food insecurity by distributing and serving food to all those who are hungry.

Food is a basic right. Through two food pantries, a Mobile Pantry Program, and Homebound Delivery Program, we offer life-sustaining food resources to those in need throughout 26 Nebraska counties.
We empower clients when they come by offering The Market – a choice pantry, to pick out nutritious, culturally appropriate food for themselves and their families. Along with food, the pantry is a gateway for clients to receive other Catholic Charities services and resources.

 

 

Who Can Receive Food?

To access food support, you must be at least 18 years of age and register in person. If you’re visiting a Catholic Charities pantry location for the first time, you must complete registration information to receive a Community Member Card, which is required to access food during each pantry visit.

Please note Catholic Charities pantries are closed on most major holidays and holy days of obligation. In case of inclement weather, please call ahead 402-235-4809.
