'Shine the Light on Hunger' in our Community

contact us
Each year, the people of Omaha, Council Bluffs, and the surrounding communities welcome the season with the spectacular Holiday Lights Festival.

For the eighth year, the season will seem even brighter as ConAgra Foods® invites you to help us "Shine the Light on Hunger." ConAgra Foods created this campaign to draw attention to the issue of hunger, which affects more than 96,000 children throughout Nebraska and 138,000 children in Iowa. ConAgra Foods encourages our community to come together to fight hunger and its effects.

As the centerpiece of this campaign, ConAgra Foods invites the community to visit the Shine the Light on Hunger holiday ice skating rink on the ConAgra Foods campus at the corner of 10th and Harney Streets. In addition, we encourage you to drop off nonperishable goods and household items at the ice skating rink as well as at other locations throughout the festival.
