Addressing the Unmet Need for Omaha’s Hungry

  • 1 in 5 children under the age of 18 years old may go to bed hungry every night in the Greater Omaha area.
  • Food comprises 17% of Nebraska’s municipal waste stream; making it the third largest contributor to landfill waste in the state and first in Omaha.
  • Of all lower income children living in Nebraska, over 44% aged 2-5 are either overweight or obese; over 47% of those aged 10-17 are either overweight or obese. Regular access to healthy, nutritious meals can make a difference for these children.

Saving Grace is a grass roots perishable food rescue and delivery nonprofit agency that picks up perishable food donations in refrigerated trucks from local restaurants, caterers, cafeterias, grocery stores, delis and food distributors. Saving Grace will not warehouse food but deliver it the same day free of charge to nonprofit agencies that serve families in need such as pantries, missions, after-school programs, daycares, senior centers and churches. It matters, we have the right organization, the right partners and we serve the right people.

We need your help! Please help us feed the hungry by rescuing the heartland’s bounty that would otherwise go to waste!
