Last November, we kicked off the 15th Annual Shine the Light on Hunger Campaign. Championed by Conagra Brands Foundation, and supported by Spreetail, Baker’s Supermarkets and friends of the Food Bank, the campaign ran through December 31st and invited the community to help hunger relief efforts. With the generous support of the greater Omaha community, this year’s campaign was record-breaking!

We surpassed our goal of raising 2 million meals by 453%. We raised 9,104,469 meals, eclipsing last year’s total by more than 3 million meals. Through overwhelming support from corporate, foundation and individual donors along with matching gifts from community partners, the 2021 Shine the Light on Hunger campaign raised a grand total of $3,021,899! In addition, the campaign brought in 46,524 pounds of non-perishable food from local collection sites and food drives.

We are beyond grateful for your outpouring of support and generosity for our neighbors in need.  Thank you!
