OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - One of the area’s busiest food pantries is closing in on a big expansion, renovating the former 11-worth Cafe building to keep up with the pandemic-sized demand.

Together Inc is moving a bunch of its offices over the building, so they can expand their food pantry just down the street.

“So the plan is to double the size of our pantry,” said Stephanie Strode, the food pantry operations manager there.

It’s an effort to keep up with record-breaking numbers of people going through their drive-thru pantry amid the pandemic.

“We serve roughly three cars a minute, that’s the average. So it’s tough; it’s cold,” Strode said.
