Nebraska Food Bank Network Charity Profile

The Food Bank is a non-profit organization whose mission is to alleviate hunger through the collection of donated food and household products and the distribution of these items to charities and organizations that help people in need. The Food Bank works with over 360 organizations in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa to combat the issue of hunger.

The Food Bank collects food nationally through its affiliation with Feeding America (a national organization of food banks and food & household product manufacturers).

The Food Bank also collects food locally through food drives and from local food manufacturers, food distributors and grocery stores.

Food is distributed to people in seventy-seven Nebraska counties and sixteen western Iowa counties.

The Food Bank distributes food to people in need through partner agencies such as the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army food pantries. More than 300 partner agencies receive food from The Food Bank which is then distributed to people who are hungry - food pantries, meal providers, emergency shelters, low-income child care centers, senior citizen programs, and rehab centers are all examples of these partner agencies.

Food also gets delivered to individuals and families via programs designed and operated by The Food Bank such as The Food Bank for Kids BackPack Program, the Senior Outreach Program, Kids Cafés, and The Food Bank Fresh Truck.

The Food Bank started on November 2, 1981 in a 9,000 square foot warehouse serving just 21 agencies. Today, utilizing a 38,000 square foot warehouse The Food Bank distributes between 5 and 7 million pounds of food annually. Since 1981, The Food Bank has distributed over 100 million pounds of food. The Food Bank is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and employs a small full time staff which is augmented by many volunteers.
