Immediate need for hygiene products, food donations
LINCOLN (MTKO/SNR) – The summer months consistently bring an increase in the number of people coming to Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach (MTKO) services in Lincoln for meals and outreach.
As a result of the busy season, supplies are depleted and MTKO is asking the community to consider holding drives in their workplaces or donating items or monetary gifts to help alleviate hunger and stress for those in need.
Items needed include backpacks, bike locks, visors or baseball caps, baby wipes or wet wipes, bug spray, sandals or flip flops, sunglasses, feminine pads, and deodorant.
Matt Talbot Kitchen provides a significant amount of food pantries to families and individuals who live from paycheck to paycheck. Food pantry items needed include beans (dried, refried, pinto), canned meat, peanut butter, cereal, oatmeal, pasta sauce, macaroni and cheese, and dry items (potatoes, stuffing, rice, Hamburger Helper).
The community’s support allows MTKO to offer key services to the many vulnerable individuals and families who come to them in need – nutritious food, a respite from the heat, assistance with housing and basic needs, and hope that their lives can improve.
Donations can be brought directly to the community kitchen and outreach center at 2121 N. 27th St., Lincoln.
