Celebrating 40 years of impact
We are featuring 40 faces who have had a direct impact on Food Bank for the Heartland’s legacy.
November 4, 2021, marked 40 years of nourishing neighbors together. Started in 1981 at a warehouse at 50th and Hamilton in Omaha, the Food Bank distributed 38,800 pounds of food through 21 partners in its first year. Our network has since grown to nearly 550 partners and we provided more than 32 million pounds of food (which includes 9,361,767 pounds of fresh produce) in fiscal year (FY) 2022. This tremendous milestone is a testament to the support of our community.
