GERING, Neb. Fresh Foods Home Delivery Program is looking to add six to eight more volunteers to their team.

This program is used to deliver food to those that are homebound every Tuesday.

Volunteers will call the homebound person, take their order for things they need, shop for them and then deliver it to them.

Those homebound can also use an app called Freshop to order their groceries online, park by the stalls and have the order taken out to you.

With COVID-19 and winter storms in session, they cannot promise that they will have everything on your list because of the fluctuating inventory.

As of right now, they are fully stocked with eggs, milk, bread, bananas and potatoes.

They are currently out of toilet tissue.

Co-Owner Kerri Dishman thanks all of her employees and volunteers for everything they do.

“The most beautiful thing is just to see the community come together for these people who aren’t able to get their groceries on a normal basis,” said Kerri Dishman, Co-Owner. “They are so happy and grateful that there are people who care about them.”
