NeighborGood (neighborgoodpantry.org) located in Papillion has seen a large increase in those seeking grocery support. Rising food prices along with federal and state relief ending has increased the number of families needing assistance with food. In 2022, NeighborGood served 54% more families compared to 2021. The large increase in the number of people seeking assistance from NeighborGood has left the pantry running low on food. NeighborGood relies on donations from individuals, businesses and churches to continue providing food for those in the area in need.
When the pantry is running low on items to stock the shelves, they must purchase it to give to families. Groups that would like to host a drive or make a donation are encouraged to reach out to the executive director.
NeighborGood serves those in need in the greater Sarpy County and Ralston community. NeighborGood provides non-perishable groceries, pet food, paper products, hygiene items, diapers and more.
