Three Square – https://www.threesquare.org – is Southern Nevada’s only food bank providing food assistance to the residents of Lincoln, Nye, Esmeralda and Clark Counties.
Three Square’s mission is to provide wholesome food to hungry people, while passionately pursuing a hunger-free community. The non-profit organization combines food banking (warehousing canned and boxed goods), food rescue (obtaining surplus or unused meats, bread, dairy and produce from hospitality and grocery outlets), and ready-to-eat meals to be the most complete food solution for Southern Nevada.
Three Square works with a service network of more than 1,600 community partners, which includes non-profit and faith-based organizations, schools, and after school and feeding sites to reach struggling individuals and families at risk of hunger.
In 2017, Three Square distributed more than 37 million meals, the equivalent of more than 45 million pounds of food and grocery product, through community partners.
Since 2007, nearly 4 million meals have been provided for those in need through Restaurant Week. Participants help the food bank get closer to the goal of feeding the more than 279,000 food insecure people in Southern Nevada.
