Check Out Hunger 2023
November 1, 2023 - December 31, 2023
An estimated 48,100 of our neighbors here in Southeast Nebraska are food insecure. With every $1 donated, the Food Bank of Lincoln can provide approximately three meals for neighbors who are facing hunger and food insecurity. This season, help us turn hungry holidays into happy holidays.
Check Out Hunger
Many area grocery stores have made it even easier to help this holiday season! Each participating store will feature Check Out Hunger displays. You can donate in $1, $5 and $10 increments at checkout stands. Peel the amount you wish to give from the display and the cashier will apply the donation to your total.
Holiday Food Drive
Thanks to our community partners, you can take part in a Holiday Food Drive. Food Bank donation barrels will be set up in participating stores to collect your non-perishable, non-expired food and personal care items during store hours. Click here to see a list of our most-needed items.
