Get Involved

You can help us end child hunger on weekends.

Individual volunteers and groups are always welcome and needed to serve weekend meals. But there are many other ways to get involved. Whether you contribute personal care items, adopt a weekend meal, donate dollars or food, or contribute your talents to our board or a committee, you will make a difference in the lives of children and youth.

Feed kids on the weekend

We Can Do This feeds children and youth at the F Street Community Center on Saturday at 1 pm and Sundays at 2:30 pm. The only thing better than working with a team to prepare the meal is seeing the faces of the kids as they enjoy the food.

Volunteers are needed to prepare meals, serve food, and clean the kitchen on Saturday and Sunday. A typical shift lasts about 2.5 hours. For more information or to volunteer, contact us.

Adopt a weekend meal

We Can Do This is grateful to the organizations that have donated food to feed our kids. If you or your business, organization, or church want to adopt a weekend meal, contact us.

Donate food and toiletries | Host a drive

We Can Do This distributes food and personal care items directly to children who need them. Our Food Pantry stocks kid-friendly foods that are easy for children and youth to prepare. And our Personal Care Pantry provides everything from soap and shampoo, toothbrushes and toothpaste, and toilet paper to kids who need them.

  • If you want to donate food or personal care items, you may drop them off at the F Street Community Center, 1225 F Street, Lincoln, NE 68508. Download a flier of needed items
  • If your business, organization, or church wants to host a food drive, contact us.

Contribute your time and talent

We Can Do This relies on the hearts and hands of our volunteers to provide services to our kids. Volunteers are always needed to serve meals on the weekends. But there are many other ways to get involved. Whether you are working in our Food or Personal Care pantries, helping with an event or fundraising committee, or serving on our board, you are making a difference in the lives of children and youth. If you’d like to get involved, contact us.

Donate dollar$

When you donate to We Can Do This, every dollar makes an impact on a child’s life. We use these funds to purchase food we serve on the weekends, supplement the donated items in our Food and Personal Care pantries, and help our kids with shoes, clothes, or other individual needs. When it’s time to return to school, your donation helps us provide children and youth with the backpacks and supplies they need to succeed. It also gives our kids a boost by helping them celebrate crucial holidays – such as Mother’s and Father’s Day and Juneteenth – and milestones, including high school graduation.
