Donate Funds

Every financial gift is another step toward ending food insecurity.

$1 can provide more than 3 nutritious meals to a person in need of food. And thanks to our ability to buy in bulk, every dollar you give goes even further. No matter the amount, we count on your donations to further our mission of eliminating hunger in the Heartland.

Thank you for taking a stand against hunger. We could not do this life-changing work across Nebraska and western Iowa without the support of donors like you.
