I would like to thank Food Bank for the Heartland for giving me the opportunity to volunteer for their Kids' Cruisin Kitchen program. It was a terrific experience for me and the other volunteers. The program was very organized and provides such a valuable service to families in the Omaha community. I feel very fortunate to have been part of such a worthwhile program. The Food Bank is definitely making a difference in our community.
I volunteered for the Kids Cruisin' Kitchen this summer. What a great program! The staff was knowledgeable and dedicated to the communities they served. The communities were so appreciative. We served over 200 lunches that day; it was humbling to realize how many children needed the food. It was nice to be able to offer food to parents as well.
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.
