Community Cupboard

The first Saturday of each month, with help from many volunteers and The Food Bank of the Heartland, Countryside’ Community Church turns into a food pantry for local families.

What we offer:

A full range of foods that changes monthly.
Fresh produce grown at the Tri-Faith Gardens.
Open to residents of Omaha and its surrounding communities.
A staff of friendly volunteers who care about our patrons.
No personal information is required.
Everyone is welcome.

Community Cupboard receives a portion of our food from the USDA through the Emergency Food Assistance Program, also known as TEFAP. No ID or additional information is required to receive TEFAP food(s) as long as you are under the monthly gross income limits.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
