Madison's Story
Madison had waited all week for it to be Friday because she knew that on Fridays she received a backpack full of food through the Great Plains Food Bank BackPack Program. But one Friday was at the end of a particularly long week and shortly after receiving her backpack she went missing. The school needed to be placed on lockdown. They eventually found her. She had locked herself in the janitor's closet and was there eating the food from the backpack. She was so hungry she couldn't make it any longer. This Giving Hearts Day you can help kids just like Madison. Remember to give this Thursday at givingheartsday.org where you donations of $10 or more will be matched up to $80,000.

Of the more than 94,000 served each year by the

Great Plains Food Bank #36percent of them are children.

Together we can end childhood hunger.
