Food Bank for the Heartland
January 8, 2013

The Food Bank for the Heartland is passionate about their mission to eliminate hunger in Nebraska and western Iowa. Then need is greater than most of us know -- seniors having to chose between paying utilities or buying groceries, kids without enough food at home on the weekends, working parents struggling to make ends meet and feed a hungry family. Approximately 21,900 people receive emergency food assistance every week in the Food Bank's service area. As a board member, I have been deeply moved by stories of the lives touched by a helping hand from the Food Bank. In addition to their own programs, the Food Bank distributed over nine million pounds of food to local non-profit agencies, who then provide it directly to those in need. The Food Bank staff is committed to making every donation count -- three meals can be distributed for every $1 donated. I am so proud to be associated with this organization and the life-changing assistance they provide.
