The Food Redistribution Program is an ALL volunteer program that seeks to rescue food destined to be thrown out and re-distribute it to people in need. Holy Family operates two vans, three days a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). We currently pick up usable food from 8 supermarkets and 1 restaurant in the Omaha metro area.
The food is then distributed to several organizations and agencies that serve the poor. The food is either used by the agencies in their meal preparations or is given directly to families for their use.
Deacon Al Aulner coordinates this program. We have several volunteers, most of whom are Knights of Columbus members, who work to pick up the food. About 15,000 pounds of food are donated monthly. In August, September and October of 2018, 77, 000, 12,000 and 15,000 lbs of bakery (78%) , produce (5%), and other groceries (17%) were distributed.
Donations for upkeep and fuel for the vans are greatly in need. Send donations to Holy Family Food Redistribution, 1715 Izard St., Omaha, NE 68102, or click the ‘Donate’ button below. Mark checks For Food Redistribution. We are in need of drivers and helpers. If you would like to help us help others through the Food Redistribution Program please contact:
