One half of Second Unitarian’s offering received in November will go to Food Bank for the Heartland. Food Bank for the Heartland distributes food to 530 food pantries, schools, emergency shelters and other nonprofit partners. They are the largest food bank in Nebraska and Iowa, serving 93 counties in the two-state region. For every dollar they receive, they can provide three meals. Food Bank for the Heartland operates its own programs that serve vulnerable populations directly, including: Kids Cafe, Back Pack, Mobile Pantry, SNAP and Kids Cruisin’ Kitchen. As the number of hungry children, families and seniors increases, these programs expand to meet the growing need.
