The Holiday Food Drive is held each year between Thanksgiving and Christmas. To kick off the drive, the Lincoln Journal Star will insert grocery bags with the slogan "Think of this bag as an empty cupboard. Help us fill it" into newspapers on Tuesday, November 18.


Friends of the Food Bank can fill these bags with food and drop them off in a Food Bank barrel at over 29 participating grocery stores in Lincoln and surrounding communities. Many stores will also have prepacked holiday food bags that customers can buy to fill the barrels.


The 2014 Holiday Food Drive is sponsored by:

Land O Lakes, Farm Credit Services , 10/11 Television, and the Lincoln Journal Star.


Since its inception, the Holiday Food Drive has brought in over 2 million pounds of food.
