Organizations Fighting Hunger
Food Bank for the Heartland
The mission of the Food Bank is to provide emergency and supplemental food to people in need in Nebraska and western Iowa. In everything we do, we serve with respect, integrity and urgency. Our service area spans 93 counties and 78,000 miles across the two states. Today, we collaborate with nearly 600 network partners, including pantries, emergency shelters, schools, churches and other organizations, to get food to our neighbors in need. We distributed enough food for more than 35 million meals in 2020, 10 million more than in 2019.
How to Help:
Iowans can support the work of Food Bank for the Heartland by donating money, food, or time, or by volunteering to host a fundraiser. Donations of money and food are critical to sustaining the work of Food Bank for the Heartland. Volunteers are needed to work in the warehouse and office, and to help with special events, SNAP outreach, and community programs.
