Open Shelf Pantry
Meet the Team
Food Pantry and Volunteer Coordinator
Open Shelf is a pantry serving North Central Lincoln.
Our mission is to provide basic-need items to our neighbors with the utmost dignity and respect, and to ultimately end the cycles of poverty and hunger that make pantries like ours necessary.
When you come to Open Shelf for the first time, we'll ask you for your name and the number of people you regularly feed. We record this and check you in each time you utilize the pantry, which you may do up to one time per week, every week if needed.
Our pantry stocks fresh produce, baked goods, canned and dry goods, as well as a variety of clothing and household items.
Open Shelf is primarily stocked through donations. Donations can be dropped off at ConnectioN Point during OpeN Shelf’s hours of operation.
Monetary donations are also appropriate. Checks should be made out to Open Shelf.
The most needed items at Open Shelf are:
Women’s hygiene supplies
Canned garbanzo beans
Fresh produce from the store or garden
