I have been working with the Food Bank of the Heartland and their backpack program for the last year with the elementary school that I work at. I have been impressed with the helpfulness of the food bank employees and the volunteers that deliver the food to my school each week. We have many students that benefit greatly from the program, and would be without food on the weekends if this program didn't exist. The food provided in the weekly packets, is food that the kids enjoy and they say that it is good. Our families are very thankful that this program is there to help them out at home when they need it.

The need in the area is huge and the Food Bank for the Heartland is constantly striving to meet it. This organization covers a huge area and crosses state lines to provide food when and where it is needed. They watch the budget closely and make every dollar stretch.

The Great!

Seeing the people getting food and not worrying for a short while about where the next meal is coming from.

The Foodbank for the Heartland makes more out of less than any charity I have been associated with in my 33 years in radio. They are so passionate about their mission and so grateful to those who catch any glimpse of the passion and help in any way. Their effort to not only collect money for food, but to inform the entire region about the growing problem of hunger in the region is tireless, relentless and inspring. They always have personel on hand at our events to thank and inform the public. If anyone asks me where they can make a difference, The Foodband for the Heartland is one of the places I would suggest first.

testimonials from many of our givers, who say the reason they are giving is the the Foodbank for the Heartland was there for them when they were on hard times. One gentleman, who is now a trucker, gave his entire bonus and one paycheck to the Foodbank to say thank you. He convinced other drivers to do the same.

provide them a means for more advertising.

Food Bank for the heartland is making such a HUGE difference not only in it's home base city of Omaha Nebraska, but they serve most of Nebraska and western Iowa! They have grown with so many great programs. They serve around 300 food pantries and distribute around seven MILLION pounds of food annually! That is why I donate the profit from my online store to them. it is not much money, but EVERY dollar counts. They can turn $1.00 donated into 3 meals.
