A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
Volunteers of America - Western Nebraska offers a unique food pantry. Our purpose is to serve the hungry. Other food pantries have implemented barriers, we have chosen to eliminate barriers and focus on distributing food to those in need. Here are a few of the comments received from users:
“Money just doesn’t go far enough and sometimes we are just struggling to make any kind of meal to feed our little guy, to hold us over. We have been so thankful to have this food bank close enough to help.”
“I can supplement with pantry food to have a well rounded, delicious meal. Being a senior citizen, this is great.”
"If this pantry was not here, I would not make it month to month as I am on a fixed income.”
“I am thankful for the food pantry because over the past three years, it has helped me feed my kids when I needed help the most.”
