Matt Talbot raises funds for expansion with walk on Give to Lincoln Day

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach got out some walking shoes to raise money for a new expansion on Give to Lincoln Day.

Early Wednesday morning, the nonprofit raised funds with a walk, which symbolized Matt Talbot’s journey from its original location to its current home on 27th Street.

“The walk will highlight how our move to N. 27th Street was just a small distance, but the increased hope and services we’ve been able to provide since making that move have been significant,” Executive Director Susanne Blue said in a press release. “We are serving more people through more programs and, unfortunately, the need is greater than ever.”

The nonprofit says it has seen a 35% increase in on-site meals and a 20% increase in the number of people served in the past year.

All funds raised on Give to Lincoln Day will go toward the expansion, which will add a building on the north side of the existing facility.
