Food Bank for the Heartland is the largest food bank in Nebraska and Iowa. In 2013 the Food Bank distributed 14.6 million pounds of food to more than 285 pantries, emergency shelters, meal providers and other non-profit organizations.
Food Bank for the Heartland serves 93 counties in Nebraska and western Iowa. Approximately 200,000 people in the Food Bank's service area are considered food insecure meaning they may not know where their next meal is coming from. For every $1 received through the virtual food drive, the Food Bank will be able to provide three meals."
