The Shine the Light on Hunger campaign builds on a 20-year commitment by ConAgra Foods and the ConAgra Foods Foundation to improve the quality of life for millions of families by taking action to solve child hunger. Taking a year-round approach to address child hunger with nonprofit partners across the U.S., ConAgra Foods donates food, engages its employees as volunteers and conducts consumer outreach to mobilize the public to support food and meal programs for children and families when they need it most. Since 1993, the ConAgra Foods has contributed more than $60 million from its Foundation to nonprofit organizations pursuing sustainable solutions to end child hunger, and it has donated more than 355 million pounds of food to Feeding America member food banks across the country.

This holiday season, ConAgra Foods set a goal of raising 1.3 million meals for the hungry through the Shine the Light on Hunger campaign. Now in its 8th year, the campaign has become a community-wide, holiday tradition, growing in support and participation year to year.

The goal reflects the more than 1 million twinkling lights on display throughout downtown Omaha as part of the Holiday Lights Festival. You can achieve this goal through participation in Shine the Light on Hunger events, like the ConAgra Foods Ice Rink, as well as making donations of non-perishable food items or funds to Food Bank for the Heartland and other locations throughout the metro. The ConAgra Foods Foundation will match all rink income dollar for dollar up to $100,000 and donate all proceeds to Food Bank for the Heartland as a component of the campaign. Donations of non-perishable food and household goods will also be collected onsite.

Through your donations and participation, you can help ensure that families in your community are well fed and healthy this holiday season. Thanks for your help!

For every $1 you donate, the Food Bank for the Heartland can distribute 3 meals to those in need.
