Foodnet is a group of volunteers from many different churches and other non-profit organizations trying to stop the waste of food and provide for those in need. We collect food from donors for distribution at our sites around the Lincoln area each day. We provide mostly perishable foods such as fruits, vegetables, dairy products, bread, etc. These are items not usually found at a dry goods food pantry, but are still in demand.
In the Four Corners District, there are sites in Milford and Seward.
Foodnet distributions sites are continuing to serve those in need in Lincoln, Crete, Denton, Milford, and Seward. Each site is taking precautions to handle food in the safest way possible. No Foodnet Site has been made aware of any volunteer or patron being diagnosed or quarantined at this time. Each Foodnet site will be adjusting their routines (which may include the use of drive-up distribution) and we appreciate your patience. We couldn’t do this without the support of the businesses and institutions that generously donate to us. The Foodnet volunteers are also vital to our organization throughout each day and we thank them for their important role at this time.
During COVID-19, the Milford distribution site has closed to distributions. Please contact FoodNet, Inc. to learn about how they are adapting.
