Don't be a Scrooge. Help fight hunger.

It just isn't Christmas without A Christmas Carol. An Omaha holiday tradition for 37 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.

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
  • Crackers
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Pork and beans
  • Hamburger Helper and other boxed meals
  • Canned soup
  • Tuna or chicken
  • Pancake mix
  • Cereal

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.
