Volunteers of America Western Nebraska Food Pantry
Lewellen, NE 69147
Details: People in Garden County have decided that no one should go hungry. Three churches joined with Volunteers of America - Western Nebraska to start a food pantry about ten years ago and support has grown every year. This year three youth groups held fund raisers to support the food pantry. Churches, clubs and individuals donated food and money to keep the shelves full as an ever-increasing number of people come for help. Many people in the area live on very limited, fixed incomes or try to get by with minimum wage jobs. Volunteers are critical for the success of the food pantry - driving 70 miles to a food bank, collecting food from supermarkets and stocking shelves. Many of the people who use the food pantry volunteer their time unloading food and stocking shelves. Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
