Three Square is Southern Nevada’s only food bank providing food assistance to the residents of Lincoln, Nye, Esmeralda and Clark Counties.
Three Square’s mission is to provide wholesome food to hungry people, while passionately pursuing a hunger-free community. We combine food banking (warehousing canned and boxed goods), food rescue (obtaining surplus or unused meats, bread, dairy and produce from hospitality and grocery outlets), and ready-to-eat meals to be the most complete food solution for Southern Nevada.
We work with a service network of approximately 1,300 community partners , which includes non-profit and faith-based organizations, schools, and after school and feeding sites – in our community to reach struggling individuals and families at risk of hunger. In 2016, we distributed more than 40 million pounds of food, the equivalent of more than 33 million meals through our community partners.
