Welcome to Food Bank for the Heartland'sVirtual BackPack Drive.
Food Bank for the Heartland is the largest food bank in Nebraska and Iowa. In 2014 the Food Bank distributed 15.5 million pounds of food to more than 225 pantries, emergency shelters, meal providers and other non-profit organizations.
One in five kids in Food Bank for the Heartland's 93-county service area is food insecure. Our BackPack program provides food for children when other resources are not available,
such as weekends and school vacations. We work with more than 250 schools across Nebraska and western Iowa to distribute 8,400 nutritious food packs to students at-risk of hunger each week. Each pack contains two
breakfast meals and two entrees with servings of milk. The price per pack is $4. Your contribution can help us fill those backpacks.
