Saving Grace Upcoming Events
Dining For Good at Dante
to help feed hungry bellies not landfills
Join us for an intimate dinner at Dante where Chef Nick Strawhecker will prepare a special meal for our honored guests to help raise needed funding.
October 4, 2021
Reservations from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Your participation in Saving Grace Perishable Food Rescue’s Dining for Good fundraising event will support our important work to feed hungry bellies with healthy food that would otherwise go to waste, along with our efforts to build awareness about wasted food and hunger. In the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro area, more than 90,000 children, seniors and families experience hunger regularly. At the same time, the EPA estimates that over one-third of the food produced is wasted. You can be part of the solution at this fundraising event.
Participants will enjoy a gourmet meal including a surprise curated from “rescued food.” Guests will purchase chances at great raffle prizes and help fund-a-need in support of Saving Grace’s important mission.
Food Day 2021
United by a vision of food that is healthy, affordable, and produced with care for the environment, farm animals, and the people who grow, harvest and serve it.
September 27 – October 2, 2021
Recognize the hard work and vision of organizations and individuals leading the charge locally. Food Day 2021 will be held Sept. 27-Oct. 3, with an in-person event tentatively being held October 2nd. In addition, stories will be shared online about local restaurants, retailers, and nonprofits making a difference in the food sector.
During the week of Sept. 27-Oct. 3, Omahans can visit the Food Day Facebook page to learn more about how organizations are dealing with the aftermath of COVID-19, fighting food insecurity, and maintaining public health.
Soil to Sustenance Seminar
October 22, 2021
More Information and Registration Coming Soon
Soil to Sustenance is a collaborative network of organizations working to address food insecurity in our community. The Soil to Sustenance Seminar Series was born out of a desire to tackle complicated issues with curiosity, openness, and dedication to the people we serve. We hope you will join us in these stimulating conversations.
Sponsored by Together, Saving Grace, Society of St. Vincent de Paul Omaha, and Whispering Roots.
This series is designed for anyone who wants to learn more about Saving Grace, wasted food and hunger. Our Food for Thought series in October will feature Creighton University’s sustainability efforts and how students are leading the way.
Omaha Hunger Experience
November 18, 2021
More Information Coming Soon
Last year Saving Grace and the Stephen Center collaborated on The Omaha Hunger Experience. Last year’s event was a wild success! Don’t let this chance to take a night off from dinner with a take-and-bake meal for four slip away. You set the table and we set the stage to help you have a conversation around the table about food and housing insecurity in our city. More details to come!
