In Rural Nebraska, Combating Hunger From The Pandemic Is A Community Effort

Each week, police in Lexington, Neb., cordon off several blocks near the edge of town, where roughly 700 cars will line up for USDA Farmers to Families food boxes. Above, volunteers organize boxes on Aug. 27, 2020.

The town of Lexington has long struggled with food insecurity. But when the coronavirus hit, it presented new challenges in feeding this community of 11,000 residents.
