Lance's Journal: Foodnet Feeds Lincoln, July 14, 2017

Back in 1985, former Lieutenant Governor of Nebraska, Frank Marsh became aware of something in Lincoln that really disturbed him.

In fact, Frank and his wife Shirley were so appalled at all of the wasting of food they saw here in the Capital City that they did something about it.. They started an organization.

And over the past 32 years, Foodnet has provided those in need with millions of pounds of food.

Linda Fitch volunteers at Foodnet every Wednesday morning. She explains what she does, "We repackage food that comes from hospital cafeterias or out-dated from grocery stores."

Helping out at Foodnet gives Linda a lot of satisfaction, "I do it because I have never ever truly been really hungry in my life and yet I know there are people who don't know where their next meal is coming from."

And that's where Foodnet comes in. There are 19 different Foodnet sites in and around Liincoln.

Many generous businesses from all over Lincoln contribute to make this a very impressive collection of food. A that food is given out to anyone in need every day of the week in Lincoln.
