The Nebraska Food Bank Network, Inc.
Foodbank for the Heartland does a great job collecting and distributing food and supplies to those in need. They act kind of like a wholesale company -- many of their clients are the groups actually feeding the hungry -- soup kitchens, churches and so on -- most of their work comes through collecting the food -- thus the word "bank" in the title.
Some of the programs go toward feeding the hungry directly too.
All in all, a great place to help out, a great cause to support.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
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.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Seeing the people getting food and not worrying for a short while about where the next meal is coming from.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Have their annual Duck Race fundraiser somewhere else.
