Statement of Non-discrimination:

Here at Just Food, our mission is to provide access to healthy food to the 19,000 Douglas County residents at risk of hunger. We serve on average 150-200 of these families a day. After seven years of operation we know that there is no one face of hunger. Hunger transcends race, religion and gender identification. Just Food is here not only to provide food to the hungry, but to empower all members of our community to live happy and healthy lives. We believe that neither hunger nor discrimination has place here in Douglas County. Just Food hopes to empower and help all inter-sectional identities at risk of hunger.
