Food Distribution

NMEP food distribution programs improve community food-related knowledge and self-sufficiency by providing healthy prepared meals, local produce through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA’s), and educational resources and activities. The program reduces food waste and expands markets for local producers by transforming gleaned and rescued food into meals and purchasing local produce from farmers.

Community Market Basket

Community Supported Agriculture

The Community Market Basket is a subscription service aimed to provide individuals with access to affordable local, fresh and healthy foods. NMEP’s longest running program has been servicing the community for 8 years. Currently partnering with the Nebraska Co-op and Lone Tree Foods, individuals receive seasonal local produce and with a dollar for dollar match if using SNAP dollars for payment.

“I have enjoyed, especially at my living at Seven Oaks, having it delivered, even if it’s veggies that I don’t ordinarily eat, it gives me a chance to cook with them again. I try not to make soup every time. We have smaller groups where we get together, and I get volunteered to make cakes. I use a lot of squash for the cakes and they say “This is the best cake I’ve ever eaten!”
