Lutheran Social Services of Nevada

LSSN’s DigiMart Food Pantry is the first online, digital food pantry in the country. Clients are able to choose their own food using a computer kiosk at LSSN or from their home computer or smartphone and pick their order up at LSSN. Clients are assigned a certain number of points every month that they may spend to purchase items through the DigiMart while shopping. While we empower our clients to choose the foods they like, we also encourage healthy choices by color-coding items according to their sugar and fat content and by making healthy items cost fewer points. DigiMart is always in need to volunteers to help pack orders and help serve our clients.

For more information, contact Tristan Hightower at tristan@lssnv.org.
