Meet Briana

Food Bank Client

Food Bank for the Heartland

Briana lives with her boyfriend and their infant daughter in an apartment in Omaha after moving from Lincoln. She and her boyfriend are employed through temp agencies, and they work alternating shifts so one is home to care for their daughter. Briana also sells her plasma to make extra money, but her family still struggles financially.

She is grateful for the pantry at Together on 24th and Leavenworth Streets and the food she receives there. Briana walks to the pantry from her apartment and has been coming to Together the past few months for supplemental food. She gets fresh fruits and vegetables, shelf-stable items and bread. She makes her boyfriend sandwiches to take to work. Briana has hypoglycemia and manages her body’s blood sugar daily. Having regular meals is important for her health.

Together is one of nearly 600 nonprofit partners across Food Bank for the Heartland’s 93-county service area helping children, families, seniors and veterans who struggle with food insecurity.
