Celebrating 40 years of impact
Throughout 2022, 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 589 partners and we provided more than 44 million pounds of food (including food distributed through SNAP) in FY 2021. This tremendous milestone is a testament to the support of our community.
