It just isn't Christmas without A Christmas Carol. An Omaha holiday tradition for 36 years, Scrooge takes us on a life-changing journey that shows us it truly is much better to give than to receive. This year, we ask you to make giving a part of your holiday tradition.
Hunger affects more than 26,000 children in Douglas County and 92,000 across Nebraska. This holiday season, the Omaha Community Playhouse is partnering with Omaha Performing Arts, Omaha Symphony, Opera Omaha and ConAgra Foods to collect non-perishable food items for the Food Bank for the Heartland as part of Shine the Light on Hunger.
During November and December, drop off non-perishable food items at OCP or other participating locations to help fight hunger. The top food items needed are:
1. Macaroni and cheese
2. Peanut butter
3. Canned tuna or chicken
4. Canned fruit
5. Canned vegetables
For more information, call (402) 553-0800.
ConAgra Foods is doing its part to make sure child hunger ends here! Join us to help the more than 16 million* children in America, including the Omaha-Metro area, who don't have consistent access to food throughout the year.
