WAYNE – The Omaha food bank truck is scheduled to visit Wayne this Saturday with food distribution at First United Methodist Church.
First United is located at 516 Main Street and the mobile food truck event will start at 10 a.m. on Saturday, September 28.
For those wishing to get food from the food truck need to arrive by 9:30 a.m. to sign-in and receive a number to assure they get food. There are also jobs for people of all physical abilities as this is a great opportunity to help others in the community.

- 9 – 10 a.m.: unload food truck and arrange food on tables
- 10 – 11:30 a.m.: distribute food, help clients load food in their vehicles then clean up and put room back to it’s original arrangement

Like Wayne Food Pantry & School Backpack Program on Facebook for upcoming events.
According to the social media account late last week, the pantry is in urgent need for canned beans and soups. Following last week’s Runza Feeds The Need Fundraiser, the food pantry and backpack program received over $400 in raising awareness of food insecurity in Wayne County.
The Wayne food pantry can be found inside First Presbyterian Church, located at 216 West 3rd Street. When the food truck is not in town, other non-perishable food items may be picked up/dropped off at First Presbyterian Church or donations can be left at either Pac N Save or Quality Foods in Wayne.
Call the church office at 402-375-2669 or email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance if you need assistance. All inquiries are confidential.
Those eligible to be served must be a resident of Wayne County, must have a photo ID, provide proof of address in Wayne County and will receive food up to three times each year.
