In the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro area, there are people in every zip code who do not always know where their next meal will come from. In fact, over 102,000 people are food insecure, and summer can be particularly difficult for them. During the school year, 62,000 students in the metro area qualify for free or reduced lunches. During the summer, when these supports are not available, families have to find new ways to provide meals. In Nebraska, 1 in 5 children are considered food insecure.
