What We Do

In neighborhoods across Nebraska and western Iowa, food-insecure children, seniors, and families who receive critical meals from Food Bank for the Heartland’s programs or one of our 610 pantry Network partners are grateful for our extraordinary community of supporters.

Since March 15, 2020, the Food Bank has provided more than 35 million meals, an 88 percent increase over the average of the previous four years. We remain committed to ensuring access to healthy food for our neighbors in need, and we continue to be humbled by the community’s outpouring of kindness during this crisis.
