The Food Bank of Lincoln is a proud member of Feeding America. Since our founding in 1982, we’ve been focused on our mission to alleviate hunger in Southeast Nebraska.
From sun up to sun down (and even longer), our dedicated team and partner agencies work together to put food on the tables of those in need, right here at home.
Including Polk, York, Fillmore, Thayer, Butler, Seward, Saline, Jefferson, Saunders, Lancaster, Gage, Otoe, Johnson, Pawnee, Nemaha and Richardson counties.
Our goal at the Gathering Place is to provide food and nourishment to all who may need it, supporting achievement of our agency’s mission to empower people living in poverty to reach economic stability.

Lighthouse has helped thousands of middle and high school students become successful adults by providing them with a safe, loving environment where they could come after school. Programs like mentoring, tutoring and academic support, activities, and nutritious snacks and meals have been the foundation that has made it possible for our students to thrive.
Our mission is to strengthen our community by teaching the English language and a variety of literacy skills to people of all cultures.
Each week Lincoln Literacy uses our facility to do their wonderful work and with Lincoln being such wonderfully ethnically diverse city, you can see how vital this partnership is to us.
McPhee Elementary is just two blocks from our church in the heart of one of the most ethnically diverse areas of Lincoln with a student breakdown of: 25% Caucasian 15% African American/Black 12% Asian, 39% Hispanic, and 9% other.
