Locally and Abroad
We are grateful to our families, friends and patrons who have supported us in all of our endeavors. We are committed to give and give back whenever possible. Whether through volunteering, events or donations, we are thankful to organizations that have given us the opportunity to help in their food, nutrition, livelihood and education efforts to those who need it most.
Three Square is Southern Nevada’s only food bank, and largest hunger relief organization, serving four counties – Clark, Lincoln, Esmeralda and Nye. Since opening in 2007, Three Square has provided more than 385 million pounds of food to hundreds of thousands of people in need and earned a reputation as one of the most efficient and effective food banks in the country. When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, Three Square immediately implemented a disaster response plan to answer sudden school and business closures, drastic declines in retail food donations, social distancing limitations on volunteer efforts, reduced on-site staff support, and the need for low-contact food distributions. Within days, Three Square had increased food distribution by 250,000 meals a week and increased the capacity of its Call Center to refer Southern Nevadans to available food resources, social services, and unemployment benefits. While Three Square’s COVID-19 relief efforts have superseded regular programs and operations for the foreseeable future, it is more committed than ever to its mission of providing wholesome food to hungry people, while passionately pursuing a hunger-free community. Three Square is a member of the Feeding America network of food banks.
Three Square’s Mission: To provide wholesome food to hungry people, while passionately pursuing a hunger-free community.
Food Insecurity: 1 in 5 Southern Nevadans is now food-insecure, up from 1 in 8 pre-COVID. 1 in 3 children now lives in a food-insecure home.
Support: For every $1 donated, Three Square can provide 3 wholesome meals.
