Direct beneficiaries per year: 21,900 different people seek emergency food assistance in our area in any given week.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: sort canned goods, deliver weekend BackPack meals to schools for children at-risk of hunger, pack boxes of non-perishable food and personal items for low-income elderly and/or provide office support.

Programs: The Food Bank works with nearly 400 organizations in Nebraska and western Iowa to combat the issue of hunger.

 The Food Bank collects food nationally through its affiliation with Feeding America (a national organization of food banks and food & household product manufacturers).

 The Food Bank also collects food locally through food drives and from local food manufacturers, food distributors and grocery stores.

 Food is distributed to people in seventy-seven Nebraska counties and sixteen western Iowa counties.

 The Food Bank distributes food to people in need through partner agencies such as Mission for All Nations and the Salvation Army food pantries. The food is then distributed to people who are hungry - food pantries, meal providers, emergency shelters, low-income child care centers, senior citizen programs, and rehab centers are all examples of these partner agencies.

Food also gets delivered to individuals and families via programs designed and operated by The Food Bank such as The Food Bank for Kids BackPack Program, the Senior Outreach Program, Kids Cafés, and The Food Bank Fresh Produce Truck.
The Food Bank started on November 2, 1981 in a 9,000 square foot warehouse serving just 21 agencies. Today, utilizing a 42,000 square foot warehouse, The Food Bank distributes  7 million pounds of food annually.
