The Bellevue Food Pantry provides food to those in need in eastern Sarpy County. Bagged donated canned and dry goods along with vouchers to Bakers Supermarkets for perishables are given to families depending on family size. The only limitations are residency proof of living in Sarpy County east of 60th street.
Voucher amount depends on both family size and available funds. Often near the end of the year, voucher amounts need to be reduced dramatically. Wide community support is received from individuals, churches and local organizations. Over $101,000 was donated in 2016 with 99.97% being used to aid families.
The people we help are not the type to give testimonials, however the fact that we never have a shortage of clients asking for help reflects the fact that we are meeting a need without causing the clients to jump through hoops for help.
