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.
