I love how Food Bank for the Heartland has brought attention to the fact that hunger is a concern right here in Omaha and surrounding areas, not just in far off cities and countries we see on TV. They reinforce this idea by sharing stories of average citizens who do their best to make ends meet, but just don't have enough at the end of each day, week or month.
