Across Nebraska, one out of every six children struggle with hunger, more than 82,000 children in Nebraska. Most Saturdays in the fall, 90,000 fans fill Memorial Stadium to cheer on the Husker Football team. This fall, Spreetail, an e-commerce company that started in Lincoln, plans to lead a charge against child hunger in Nebraska. For every offensive yard the Huskers gain during the regular season, Spreetail will donate 60 meals to Nebraska's Feeding America Food Banks: Food Bank for the Heartland & Food Bank of Lincoln.
The Nebraska Husker season kicked off on August 31st, 2019 at Memorial Stadium with our first win of the season, and over 16,500 meals provided to children across Nebraska!
Spreetail is leading the charge, but YOU can get involved in the effort, too! Whether you want to demonstrate your confidence in the team or you're confident there's no place for child hunger in our state, you can donate now. Funds raised will be shared between Food Bank for the Heartland and Food Bank of Lincoln, who together serve all 93 of Nebraska's counties and the children who live in them.
