Shine the Light on Hunger

January 2020

Omaha, NE

Did you know? More than 25,000 children in Douglas County, 82,000 across Nebraska, and 111,000 in Iowa live with hunger every day. You can make this season a little brighter for those in need this holiday season.

With the support of this very generous community, Conagra Brands has set an ambitious goal this year of raising the equivalent of 1.75 million meals to support the hunger relief efforts led by Food Bank for Heartland as part of the annual “Shine the Light on Hunger” campaign.

How to get involved!

  • The public is invited to make donations of nonperishable food at the various drop off sites around town
  • The Capitol District Ice Rink on 10th Street and Capitol Avenue returns again this year to entertain families. A portion of the admission fee will be matched up to $100,000 by the Conagra Brands Foundation
  • From Nov. 14, 2019, to Jan. 3, 2020, Baker’s will sell $1 paper light bulbs that customers can purchase, sign and post in each store to donate to the campaign. Baker’s Supermarkets has generously pledged $20,000 to match customer donations made to Shine the Light on Hunger at checkout. All proceeds benefit Food Bank for the Heartland.
