MTKO serves the needs of Lincoln's working poor and homeless through outreach, advocacy, education, and the provision of food and shelter.

For over 21 years Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach (MTKO) has served the homeless and near homeless. Feeding the hungry is at the core of our mission - MTKO serves a hot nutritious lunch and dinner every day of the year. MTKO also offers homeless prevention services such as life skills training, substance abuse evaluations & counseling, case management, and transitional housing.

With these services, we can have great impact in alleviating and/or preventing homelessness and improving the quality of life for those in great need. As a center for persons who are homeless, Matt Talbot is often a first stop for a meal and information and referral. Because of this, the agency has the opportunity to serve a large number of people in a unique, empowering, and compassionate manner. Staff work to link individuals and families to the appropriate resources offered through Matt Talbot and other community resources.

In the past year we have:

  • Provided over 107,000 nutritious meals - up 4,000 from last year!
  • Assisted over 3,200 unduplicated men, women, and children with prevention services in addition to the provision of meals.
  • Provided over 20,000 Outreach and Homeless Prevention Services.
  • Received over 10,000 instances of Volunteer Support for Hunger Relief and Homeless Prevention, and
  • Celebrated the alleviation of hunger and homelessness and the success of many of our struggling clients.

Thank you for your support!
