The Dean Fricke Memorial Episcopal Food Pantry is a 501(c)(3) organization and is staffed by 30-35 volunteers from the Episcopal churches in the Omaha area, under the direction of a board of directors. The board consists of one or two representatives from those churches, plus up to two at-large members. Board members from churches are appointed by the rectors of the churches, while at-large members are appointed by the board. The pantry is a unique ministry that reaches from church to church, bringing together Episcopalians from across the metro area. The churches represented are All Saints, Church of the Resurrection, St. Andrews, St. Augustine’s, St. Martha’s, St. Martin of Tours and Trinity Cathedral.


The Very Rev. Jack Fricke, Dean of the Cathedral, was an enthusiastic supporter of the pantry and always encouraged other churches to become involved, so when he died in 1990, Fr. Gabb said it was appropriate that when the pantry was reorganized to be a collaborative effort of Omaha-area churches, the new entity should be named the Dean Fricke Memorial Episcopal Food Pantry.
