Food Pantries

Our St. Francis Food Pantry in Lincoln utilizes a Choice Pantry model of food distribution.

Food Pantries


The St. Francis Food Pantry in Lincoln provides families and individuals the opportunity to select perishable and non-perishable food items once per month. Our pantry is set up in a way that allows volunteers to accompany clients as they walk through and select the items that meet their dietary and nutritional needs. We also provide meat, dairy products, and fresh fruits and vegetables as they become available. Nutritional information and recipes are featured weekly in our food pantry. 

Requests for same-day food pantries are taken Monday through Thursday from 8 am until 9 am.

To make a request, please call 402.327.6200. You will be placed on hold in the order that calls are received. Calls are taken on a first come first served basis until all pantry requests are filled. 

Please bring your Service Point card or one form of identification with you when you come to pick-up your food pantry. 

Pickup Hours for the St. Francis Food Pantry are Monday through Thursday from 2 pm to 4 pm.
