Stronger Than Hunger

Most Saturdays in the fall, 90,000 fans fill Memorial Stadium to cheer on the Husker Football team. This fall, Spreetail plans to lead a charge against child hunger in our state. For every offensive yard the Huskers gain during the regular season, Spreetail will donate $20 to Nebraska’s Feeding America Food Banks: Food Bank for the Heartland & Food Bank of Lincoln.

Spreetail’s leading the charge, but you can get involved in the effort, too! Whether you want to demonstrate your confidence in the team or you’re confident there’s no place for child hunger in our state, you can donate at Funds raised will be shared between Food Bank for the Heartland & Food Bank of Lincoln, who together serve all 93 of Nebraska’s counties.
