Heartland United Way Food Drive


Heartland United Way's Food Drive - Monday, September 5 - Wednesday, September 14th 2022

Food collected during the food drive is distributed to local food pantries and back pack programs in Hall, Hamilton, Howard and Merrick Counties in Nebraska. Heartland United Way works with FFA leaders and local grocery stores to coordinate the food drive efforts.

In previous years, in addition to donating food at Husker Harvest Days, community members can support the drive by donating at Super Saver - 2nd St., Super Saver - Five Points and Hy-Vee. The Heartland United Way Food Drive is made possible by Nebraska Farm Bureau, Aurora Cooperative, and Farm Progress. Stay tuned for more details in 2022!
