Food Bank for the Heartland


Food Bank for the Heartland is saddened by recent tragic events, both locally and nationally. We join our community partners in seeking justice for friends, family, and neighbors who, because of the color of their skin, are not treated fairly. We have a responsibility to our partners, employees, and those we serve to address injustice to the best of our ability.

Community members and partners have overwhelmingly supported recent efforts to address food insecurity. We hope an equal amount of compassion and unity is realized concerning issues of racial equity and fairness.

Brian Barks
President and CEO
