Stocking up a new pantry, building up democracy

Amy Hernandez, who attends Civic Nebraska’s Randolph Elementary School Community Learning Center, is a democracy-builder. When the pandemic pushed our programs online, Amy and her mom Cecilia checked out CIVIC U. Here, they looked into our summer mini-grant program for community improvements. The result came Friday with a brand-new Little Free Pantry at Proyecto Cultural, 2222 Y St. Check out this story from our own Michael Bandy, Lincoln Northeast’s Community Learning Center leader.
