Omaha Arts Organizations Partner With Conagra to Shine the Light on Hunger

Omaha Performing Arts, Omaha Symphony, Omaha Community Playhouse, Opera Omaha and Joslyn Art Museum have been proud to partner with the Conagra Brands Foundation this holiday season in support of the 11th annual Shine the Light on Hunger campaign. This community-wide tradition, running now through February 14, is a rallying call to leaders, businesses and families throughout the local community to support hunger relief programs and provide meals for those who are food insecure.

Tackling the issue of hunger is a collective effort and therefore as part of the overall campaign, the following cultural institutions will help to raise awareness through a community wide canned food drive.

  • The Durham Museum
  • Joslyn Art Museum
  • Omaha Children’s Museum
  • Omaha Community Playhouse
  • Omaha Performing Arts Society (Holland Performing Arts Center and Orpheum Theater)
  • Omaha Symphony Association (Holland Performing Arts Center)
  • Opera Omaha

Patrons are encouraged to bring canned food and other non-perishable items to all participating cultural organizations through February 14, 2018.

All donations collected will support Food Bank for the Heartland. This year, with the support of the very generous local community, Conagra Brands has set an ambitious goal of raising the equivalent of 1.4 million meals to support hunger relief efforts of Food Bank for the Heartland.
