Food Bank for the Heartland continues to assist communities impacted by the spring 2019 flooding across Nebraska and Iowa as they rebuild. Since March, we have distributed more than 600,000 disaster meals to individuals and families in need.
“And the Floods Came: Nebraska 2019” looks back at the historic disaster while also looks forward – hearing from those in both urban and rural areas who are unsure about their future, but determined to rebuild their lives and communities.
In addition to eyewitness accounts of the devastation and deeply personal stories of survival, the documentary examines the circumstances that made this flooding so unique in the state’s history.
The Food Bank is a proud member of Nebraska’s new Go Big Breakfast coalition! We know that kids are healthier and do better academically if they have the food they need in the morning. The Go Big Breakfast coalition, supported by the No Kid Hungry Campaign, is offering grants to Nebraska schools to help schools increase breakfast participation in their schools by transitioning to an alternative breakfast model.
