Join us on Friday, March 2 to Mark 100 Million Pounds

2/28/2018

You are invited to attend an open house event to recognize the distribution of the Food Bank’s 100 millionth pound of food since the Food Bank opened more than 35 years ago.

Friday, March 2  •  10-11 a.m.
Food Bank of Lincoln  •  4840 Doris Bair Circle, Ste. A



“It took 35 years, thousands of volunteers and donors, and hundreds of staffers to get to this mark,” said Scott Young, Food Bank Executive Director. “It will take just a little over a decade to distribute our second 100 million pounds as we strive to distribute more and more healthful foods. Not a single pound out of these hundred million could have been distributed without a caring community of people who have a hunger to help.”

A brief program will begin shortly after 10 a.m. and include remarks from Food Bank Executive Director Scott Young, Lincoln Mayor Chris Beutler, and Kayla Ondrak, a Food Bank client and graduate of the Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’-By World series.

Please RSVP by Noon on Thursday, March 1 to Corrine at (402) 466-8170, ext. 121 or via email.
