In July 2022, Crossroads Mission Avenue became Food Bank for the Heartlands‘ newest Lexington Partner! Mobile food distributions are provided on the first Thursday of each month! There are no requirements and no cost for the food – EVERYONE is welcome!
Sadly, Lexington is described as the largest food desert in the State of Nebraska. During the first half of 2023, over 8,700 individuals representing 2,389 Dawson County households received food boxes! Praise God! Crossroads is excited about the opportunity to provide food services for those with food insecurities in Dawson County. With costs increasing rapidly, some families are forced to decide between buying enough gas to get to work OR buying enough groceries for the week. With this partnership between Food Bank for the Heartland and Crossroads Mission Avenue, help is available to families in Lexington.
Crossroads Mission Avenue AND Food Bank for the Heartland sponsor the mobile food pantries in Lexington on the first Thursday of every month at the Dawson County Fairgrounds at 3pm! The Dawson County Fairgrounds are located at 1000 Plum Creek Parkway in Lexington. Food distribution begins at 3pm, and continues until the supplies run out. The food boxes are provided free of charge.
We ALWAYS need VOLUNTEERS: If you are available to help us pass out food boxes, call 308-236-5688 for more info! We always need VOLUNTEERS who are willing to help our neighbors! Call NOW if you can donate a few hours to help us HELP OTHERS!
