Grocery Store Donations Help Matt Talbot Survive Summer Months
Collection barrels at local grocery stores are helping replenish Matt Talbot’s (mtko.org) food pantry this summer by making it easy for customers to donate needed items such as beans (dried, refried, pinto), canned meat, peanut butter, cereal, oatmeal, pasta sauce, mac & cheese, and dry items (potatoes, stuffing, rice, Hamburger Helper).
Two Russ’s Market’s (S. 17th & Washington and S. 33rd & Highway 2) completed their collection on July 4th. All Lincoln area Hy-Vee stores are currently accepting donations.
“Matt Talbot provides a significant amount of food pantries to families and individuals who live from paycheck to paycheck,” said Susanne Blue, Executive Director. “We are so grateful to Russ’s Market and Hy-Vee for making it easier for community members to help us out during our busiest season of the year.”
Donations can also be brought directly to the community kitchen and outreach center at 2121 N. 27th Street.
