Omaha Food Lovers

Welcome! Thank you for visiting the Omaha Food Lovers' fundraising page in support of Food Bank for the Heartland!

As we all know, the OFL community has shown themselves to be an amazingly caring, supporting and giving group, so it only makes sense for us to come together during this holiday season in support of those struggling to put food on their table during this extremely difficult year.  Sometimes, many of us probably take for granted all the amazing food that gets shared in the group.  This is an opportune time for us to truly give back to our community.  With that said, we are partnering with the Food Bank for the Heartland in hopes of raising at least $25,000 between now and Christmas!  With 45,000 members, this is a very attainable goal! 

As an additional incentive, your name will be put into the drawing for one of over 360 gift cards that have been donated by over 135 Omaha restaurants!  Please donate whatever you are able to give during this trying time.  All amounts are appreciated!   

Food Bank for the Heartland’s mission is to provide emergency and supplemental food to the people in need in Nebraska and western Iowa. Their service area covers 93 counties and spans 78,000 square miles.

2020 is unlike anything they have ever seen. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, more residents than ever are considered food insecure and do not have regular access to food.  

The Food Bank’s COVID-19 response from March - September alone:

  • Distributed 18 million meals – a 72% increase from last year
  • Served 742,493 people – a 70% increase from last year
  • Purchased $4 million of food – 220% increase from last year

This record number of meals would not be possible without the outpouring of support from people like you! You can help provide critical meals during this unprecedented time of need.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to test our strength and resilience, but our community remains committed to helping our struggling neighbors. The need is greater than ever, and Food Bank for the Heartland is adjusting to meet the increased demand while prioritizing health and safety.
