A. The Great Plains Food Bank is serving more people than ever before. With even a small commitment each month, you can have a huge effect on the fight against hunger. Feeding Hope Partners help us in several ways. More of your gift is directed toward food and services for the hungry since you are saving us time and money by eliminating gift solicitation appeals and other administrative costs.

A dependable source of income allows us to plan for the years ahead – budgeting and allocating resources to ensure our network and the people it serves always has a supply of food.
