Food Programs at the Indian Center

Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) is a federally-funded program, which works to improve the health of elderly people (60 years of age) by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA commodity foods.  CSFP food packages do not provide a complete diet, but rather are good sources of the nutrients typically lacking in the diets of the target population. Proper nutrition is also important in maintaining the health of senior citizens. It is for this reason that we provide commodity foods. The typical food package distributed to a client includes, nonfat dry milk, cereal, pasta product, peanut butter or dry beans, canned meat, canned vegetables, canned fruit, cheese, and juice.

Community Lunch/Senior Diners – This program provides daily, nutritious meals to a combination of senior and low income individuals per day. Funding comes from private donations and local corporate support; food preparation is carried out nearly wholly by volunteers.

Emergency Food Pantry – Provides 7-day food supply for individuals or families in crisis. Applications for food boxes are accepted Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons between 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. and subject to availability (quantities of food are limited). Eligible to pick up every three months (90 days). Must bring Social Security Numbers for all members of the household every time you pick up.

Perishable Food Distribution - Foodnet is a group of volunteers from many different churches and non-profit organizations, trying to STOP the waste of food, and MEET all human needs. Intended especially for those who are trying on their own to provide food for their families, but hardships such as layoffs, sickness, car problems and other unexpected catastrophes have made paychecks smaller leaving less money for food.

Mostly perishable foods such as fruits, vegetables, dairy products, bread, etc. are provided to all needy families. Distributions are offered at the Indian Center on Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. Support is received from the Food Bank of Lincoln.
