"We're keeping a positive attutude"
Amanda Jackson knows the feeling of being homeless all too well. That feeling is compounded when attempting to offer a life of opportunity for her nine-year-old daughter, who struggles with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). But despite struggles that would break a lot of families, Amanda and her daughter, Kylen, remain positive saying simply, "what else can you do?"

Food assistance through the Great Plains Food Bank partner agency network helps them to get by.

Ending Hunger Around the State

RDO Caters Taters
Now in its 19th year, RDO Caters Taters for Charity had a record-breaking year in 2018 raising a total of $83,333. Funds this year were donated to the Great Plains Food Bank and the amount is enough to supply nearly 250,000 meals for hungry children, seniors and families in our region.
Family Fare gives back
Through their annual scan campaign, customers from local Family Fare grocery stores gave at the checkout lanes to provide $6,600 to benefit the Great Plains Food Bank. The donation will help to supply 19,800 meals for our hungry neighbors.
