It takes a Village to feed a Village!

September 20, 2022

Or more appropriately, it takes a community to feed the homeless and needy! Crossroads Mission Avenue has been blessed by several community supporters, as they have come together to meet our various refrigeration needs! Proper refrigeration is imperative for lengthening the usability of donated food products, allowing Crossroads to supply more essential meals for the homeless and food boxes for those families in the community experiencing food insecurities. Crossroads is committed to providing food, shelter and care for the homeless and needy in Central Nebraska, with the support from our communities playing a vital role in our ability to meet these basic needs. Giving our needy neighbors the help they require benefits all Nebraska residents in the long run!
