208,200 people in Nebraska and Western Iowa are food insecure, and 83,800 children under the age of 19 are at-risk for hunger. 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:
- Pasta and pasta sauce
- Peanut butter
- Canned fruit, vegetables and meat
- Macaroni and cheese
- Pork and beans
- Hamburger Helper and other boxed meals
- Canned soup
- Tuna or chicken
- Pancake mix
For more information, call (402) 553-0800.
