Providing food, clothing and promoting self-sufficiency for people in need.
Heartland Hope Mission is the largest food pantry in Nebraska. We provide a week's supply of groceries, along with hygiene products, clothing items, and household goods to the working poor. In addition, we assist clients by providing eligibility screenings,referrals and SNAP (food stamp) applications.
Heartland Hope Makes a Difference
“I really just want to be able to provide for my kids and for my family. We are struggling now more than ever. I used to send donations to the Mission and never thought I would have to come to receive food. I just had my baby 2 months ago and I was working full time before then. When I tried to switch to part-time hours in order to properly care for my kids, my job laid me off. I have been working hard to try and find a part-time job, but I am so grateful for Heartland Hope for helping us through this rough time. Thank you for truly caring for our family.”
