As we are all aware, food insecurity in our communities is at an all-time high. Even though the holiday giving season has passed, the need for food is still at a crisis level. 

As a joint effort we are asking our Rotarian family and friends across District 5630 and 5650 to help raise funds to help those in critical need of food.

In 2019 The Food Bank of the Heartland, in conjunction with the Lincoln Food Bank, distributed 22.7 million meals across 93 counties in Western Iowa and Nebraska. Beyond the more than 600 food pantries, schools, emergency shelters and other nonprofit partners directly supported, the Food Bank for the Heartland also coordinates other programs including SNAP (formerly the food stamp program), Mobile Pantry, and the Backpack Program.

Based on the Food Banks partnerships with growers and producers, each $1 donated can help provide 3 critically needed meals, so even a small donation can make a big difference.

Donations received in the Lincoln Food Bank service area (designated by zip codes) will go to the Lincoln Food Bank.

District 5650 will match the first $12,000 from its members to be donated to the food bank servicing their communities (Heartland Food Bank or Lincoln Food Bank). District 5630 is matching $5,000.00 for their members contributions.

Send this link to your friends, family and colleagues. If any corporations are offering matching funds, please let them know. These donations are tax deductible.

Rotarians are truly PEOPLE of Action.

Thank you for making this food drive a tremendous success.
