Host a Food Drive
The Food Bank has a new resource to assist in the fight against hunger. Designed to look like a grocery store, the virtual food drive presented by Woodmen of the World allows donors to select items from the shelves as if purchasing food to donate. As items are scanned at the cash register, you can see the multiplying factor of the donated dollars translated into meals for the hungry in our community. It is easy for individuals and companies and very effective. An informational sheet is below. Contact Tim Bivens, Food Sourcing Manager, for more information at 402.905.4807.
