Since 2013, the Maverick Food Pantry has distributed more than 6,500 pounds of food.
The mission of UNO’s Maverick Food Pantry is to contribute to UNO’s culture of caring by providing food to those in immediate need and connecting them with resources in the greater Omaha area for long-term support. We are dedicated to eliminating hunger in the UNO community and increasing awareness of food insecurity and nutrition.
The Maverick Food Pantry offers pre-packed food packages containing approximately 2 days-worth of non-perishable food items. Packages may be requested by accessing the Request Form on the Maverick Food Pantry page.
To donate food or for help with the request form, visit the Office of Student Life and Leadership Development on the first floor of the MBSC, or call 402.554.2711. To volunteer, complete the Volunteer Sign Up form.

On May 21st from midnight to midnight, you have 24 hours to support the causes you care about by making a donation of $10 or more to nonprofits that serve Douglas, Sarpy, and Pottawattamie counties.
Omaha Gives! is out to inspire the community to come together for 24 hours to contribute as many charitable dollars as possible to support the work of local nonprofit organizations.
Last year they collectively raised over $3 million for local nonprofits.
Let’s show off just how generous our community can be!
