Meals

The Siena/Francis House is the largest meal provider to the homeless in the State of Nebraska. In 2016, the Siena/Francis House Homeless shelter provided 417,226 meals to the more than 3,800 hungry individuals who were homeless at our shelter last year. The following meals comprise our shelter’s Meal Provider Program:

  • Breakfast
  • Brunch on Sundays and all major holidays
  • Mid-day Lunch & Sack Lunches
  • Evening Dinner

Each year, the Siena/Francis House partners with nearly 450 local grocery stores, food production companies, schools, businesses, churches, and households to provide the vast majority of the food used to prepare these meals. Similarly, the Siena/Francis House partners with over 350 local churches, schools, businesses, and households to prepare and serve these meals. These relationships allow the Siena/Francis House the ability to serve the profound number of persons who come to us in need of food. These relationships also allow us to keep our Meal Provider Program costs as low as possible.
