In honor of Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, Stephen Center (stephencenter.org) and Saving Grace Perishable Food Rescue invite the community to participate in the Omaha Hunger Experience, sponsored by American National Bank, on November 10.
This “take-home” event provides dinner with a twist and activities to learn about homelessness. Participants will receive a pre-ordered, gourmet, take-home meal for four, a low-cost sack supper, dessert, and educational materials to explore what it is like to be hungry and homeless. Back at home, individuals will heat the food and use the materials to discover whether their luck provides them with the gourmet dinner or the poverty meal.
The registration deadline is October 31. Kit pickup will be at American National Bank, 8990 West Dodge Rd., from 3:30 to 6 p.m. on November 10. Bring a turkey or ham to donate to Stephen Center and receive a free Omaha Hunger Experience apron while supplies last. All proceeds benefit Stephen Center and Saving Grace Perishable Food Rescue. Learn more and register at stephencenter.org/news-and-events.
