Monthly Food Truck Will Arrive With Pre-Boxed Items, Volunteers Still Needed

WAYNE – The Omaha food bank truck delivery is scheduled to visit Wayne this Saturday with food distribution at Our Savior Lutheran Church.

Our Savior Lutheran Church is located on the corner of fifth and Main Street and will host the Wayne Food Truck on Saturday, March 28 at 10 a.m. Those wishing to get food from the food truck need to be at Our Savior by 9:30 a.m. to assure they get food and are being asked to remain in their vehicle as the church building will not be open for any reason.

All food will arrive pre-boxed and be distributed in the church parking lot.

There are also jobs for people of all physical abilities as this is a great opportunity to help others in the community. For questions regarding distribution, contact First United Methodist Church at 402-375-2231.

The Wayne Food Pantry is closed as those who are scheduling an appointment will have to call 402-375-2669. Like Wayne Food Pantry & School Backpack Program on Facebook for upcoming events as a recent post last week stated their current needs are ‘pancake mix and syrup, instant rice, instant potatoes, jelly, cereal, tomatoes and canned fruit.’

Along with school meals being provided Monday through Friday by Wayne Community Schools, the Backpack Program will also be available on Fridays to students enrolled in their plan. The lunch sites between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. are the Wayne Jr/Sr High School kitchen, Wayne Early Learning Center (801 Providence Road) and the Carroll Library.

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 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.
