Dine Out To Help Out Going On To Benefit Food Bank of Lincoln

All day Wednesday, you can help the Food Bank of Lincoln by dining out at one of your favorite restaurants.

Ten percent of the money from participating restaurants in Lincoln will go to the Food Bank. Brad Hartman, who was part of KFOR’s management team over 30 years ago, told Schmidt, Carol and Mick he first saw this concept while at a conference.  He brought the idea back to Food Bank of Lincoln officials and presented it to a couple of major restaurant owners.

“Tony Messineo at Valentino’s and Don Everett at Runza restaurants and they didn’t hesitate a minute,” Hartman told KFOR.  “They said, ‘Absolutely.  We’ll help out.”

At least 10% of your total bill at Lincoln’s participating restaurants will help benefit the Food Bank of Lincoln.

Michaella Kumke is the Food Bank’s community engagement director and told KFOR’s Schmidt, Carol and Mick Dine Out helps bring in $35,000, but what that really means is about 90,000 meals for folks in southeast Nebraska.
