Annual “Dine Out To Help Out” This Wednesday

LINCOLN, Neb.(September 12, 2022) — For the 34th year in a row, local eateries and beverage establishments will rally to fight hunger in Southeast Nebraska. On Wednesday, Sept. 14, 92 community-minded restaurant and beverage industry locations will participate in Dine Out to Help Out by donating at least 10 percent of the days’ proceeds to the Food Bank of Lincoln to help feed neighbors in need.

The event coincides with Hunger Action Month, a dedicated time for food banks and advocates across the country to take action to fight hunger in our communities. In the Food Bank of Lincoln’s 16-county service area of Southeast Nebraska, an estimated 49,810 neighbors are facing hunger; of that, 14,900 are children under the age of 18, according to data from Feeding America.
