Host A Fundraiser/Drive

Host a Food Drive

Hosting a food drive is a great way to build engagement with your employees, church congregation or other organization while showing compassion toward those in our community that need a little extra help.

Food drives also help raise awareness about hunger, the individuals experiencing insufficient food and the work the Food Bank does in the fight against hunger.

The donated food items gathered in boxes, bags or bins is a very real, tangible, and meaningful way for your group to make a difference. A food drive is an especially impactful activity for young people, providing them a visual illustration of their concern for less fortunate persons.

If you would like to host a food drive, this informational flyer is a great place to start. If you’re ready to request a barrel for food, complete this form.

Host a Fundraiser

With your help, third-party fundraisers provide invaluable support of our mission to alleviate hunger in Southeast Nebraska.

Proceeds from your fundraising event will make a profound difference in the lives of hungry children, families and seniors in our community.

Fundraisers are impactful because each dollar donated to the Food Bank can provide nearly three meals for hungry neighbors in Southeast Nebraska.

And third-party fundraisers help raise awareness about hunger, the individuals experiencing insufficient food and the work the Food Bank does in the fight against hunger.
