Lincolnites serve meals to people in need on Easter 

Places all across the city of Lincoln stepped up this Easter to make sure nobody went hungry. 

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Places all across the city of Lincoln stepped up this Easter to make sure nobody went hungry.

The People’s City Mission served food to the homeless and people less fortunate, something they have made an Easter tradition for over a century.

“I don’t know if we did it the very first couple years of the mission, but I know we have done this for over 100 years,” Pastor Tom, the CEO of People’s City Mission said.

People gathered at the shelter while enjoying their meals, the mission served around 250 to 300 people on Sunday.

A couple miles away, The Taste of Louisiana stayed open on Easter to make southern cuisine meals for people in need. The owner, Pokey Black, dropped off to-go boxes of food to specific places he knows people gather that need meals the most. He has served free meals to people on every holiday since his business opened last year amid the pandemic.
