The Tri-City Food Pantry serves the people who live in the communities of Ralston, La Vista, Papillion and surrounding areas.

Many people believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small pockets of society or certain neighborhoods but the reality is much different.  Right now, many people right here in our community are struggling with hunger.  They may have recently lost a job or are disabled and unable to work.  They are often hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot make ends meet.

The Tri-City Food Pantry provides service by referrals only.

In colder weather, please do not pack up vehicles too far in advance of delivering food donations to the food pantry.  Due to the extremely cold temperatures, canned goods can freeze.  If they freeze, the seal may break which means we can not use the food.  We would not want all of your hard work to go to waste.  Thank you for your cooperation.
