As inflation continues to impact Heartland families, Omaha Steaks is showing its support in a big way. The organization donated nearly $400,000 of proteins and gourmet food to help alleviate hunger across the Food Bank’s service area.

OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV)Omaha Steaks made a big donation on Tuesday: about $400,000 worth of food to Food Bank for the Heartland.

That amounts to 14,000 pounds worth of steak, sides, poultry, pork and seafood. The company wanted to make a positive difference for people experiencing hunger. As the president of the food bank explained, protein can be expensive and less available.

“Protein items, I can’t stress enough how much we need protein items. And to be able to have someone like Omaha Steaks say ‘Hey, y’know, we’re going to help.’ That goes a long way in helping us in our mission work,” said President and CEO Brian Barks.
