Our mission is simple - feed hungry children!
Providing nutritious food to hungry children is more than just giving food; it's providing hope, wellness, and opportunity. Together we can help kids succeed in school, fight disease, and build a strong foundation for a healthy life.
In the US, 6.5 million children live in food insecure households. This means that they don't know where their next meal is coming from. In Nebraska, 1 in 6 children struggle with hunger. This can cause behavioral, physical, and social problems leading kids to struggle to keep up with their peers and can lead to long-term health issues.
Nourish Nebraska gets right to the heart of the problem; we get nourishing foods straight in to the hands of hungry kids. We do this by working with schools and providing a refrigerator that we keep stocked with fresh produce the kids can take home after school every day.
We are completely volunteer based from our Board of Directors to our drivers that make weekly deliveries to schools. Every cent you donate goes directly where it should - to get food in hungry bellies.
