Heartland United Way Food Drive gives back to the community
GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Heartland United Way Food Drive is looking to address food insecurity for vulnerable people in Hall, Hamilton, Howard, and Merrick Counties.
On Monday, Sept. 4, collection boxes were set up at many local stores such as Hy-Vee, Super Saver on 2nd Street, Super Saver 5 Points, Whitefoot Market, Hometown Market, MNO Hometown Market, and Kerry’s Grocery. Some suggested items people can donate are proteins, stews, dry box items, canned vegetables, fruits, liquids, and sauces.
The largest food collection for Heartland United Way is at Husker Harvest Days from Sept. 12-14 at the bus entrance from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. FFA students can attend for free with a minimum donation of five non-perishable food items. These efforts go to provide local families in need through food pantries and backpack programs.
The food distribution will be this Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Third City Christian Church in Grand Island.
