Due to staff and financial restraints, The Salvation Army regrets the need to close the Kroc Center Material Assistance Location effective September 23, 2014. Referrals for food pantry or other needs can be obtained by calling the Material Assistance Main Office at 402-898-5860 or The United Way at "211." This does not effect our Material Assistance Office or services located at 3612 Cuming Street.

Those in need of food are eligible every 30 days.
