Heartland United Way's Food Drive

HUW's Food Drive


Heartland United Way's Food Drive - Monday, September 4th- Wednesday, September 13th, 2023

Food collected during the food drive is distributed to local food pantries and backpack 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, Hy-Vee, Hometown Market in St. Paul, Whitefoot Market in Boelus, and Kerry's grocery in Dannebrog. The Heartland United Way Food Drive is made possible by Nebraska Farmer, Farm Progress, and local FFA Chapters.
