Our Douglas County Food Bank does not provide food directly to residents. Instead, our Food Bank provides food to a host of other agencies who in turn make that food available to people who qualify for it.
If you are pregnant or are a mother of young children, you may qualify for WIC benefits that will help you pay for certain foods.
There are many ways to obtain additional, free food in our communities. You might qualify for a free food box containing several days worth of food. You might be able to eat free food at a local site. You might even be able to have free food delivered to your home.
