Digimart Food Pantry
The DigiMart Food Pantry is an innovative, client-choice food pantry that provides individuals with the ability to select and order their own food online using computer kiosks at Lutheran Social Services of Nevada or from their own homes using their laptop or smartphone. Digital functions of the DigiMart were paused due to COVID-19, but are set to relaunch in early 2023. In the meantime, please visit the DigiMart in person between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
If it is your first time visiting the DigiMart Food Pantry, please bring the following documents: an ID for each member of the family (state ID, birth certificate, clarity card, or passport), your social security card, proof of income, and proof of address. After your first visit, you will be able to schedule an appointment once every two weeks.
