Earth Day Omaha and Sarpy County Earth Day have moved to primarily a virtual format for 2021, and Saving Grace is a participant in the Nebraska Earth Day Passport.

From April 15 through May 15, participants are being challenged to submit photos featuring one of Saving Grace’s food donors. Photos must be submitted to receive a participation code. A list of our food donors, along with a map, is available online.

Look for “Saving Grace Perishable Food Rescue’s I Spy No Wasted Food Challenge” on the passport. We encourage you to be creative when taking pictures. Selected photos will be featured on Saving Grace’s social media sites. We will give away three Saving Grace t-shirts a week to those who accept our challenge and are the most creative with their photos.

Visit to register for the passport and find out more about the events. Log in to see the various challenges by participating organizations, including Saving Grace. Registration for the Earth Day Passport is free and is available by phone, computer or other smart device.

Through the Earth Day Passport, participants can complete environmental challenges, earn points, and earn a chance to win daily and grand prizes between now through May 15. Top daily players will be picked each day at 8 a.m. to choose from a variety of local prizes. When the passport ends on May 15, top overall players will qualify for the grand prize drawing. Follow the leaderboard to watch results in real time.

A mini Earth Day Omaha celebration on Saturday, April 17, at Elmwood Park includes a “hard-to-recycle” drive-through collection, park cleanup, yoga, tree planting, bike ride and a conservation conversation. Visit the Earth Day Omaha website for details and times.
