United Way of the Midlands (UWM) is proud to announce it has been awarded a grant of $86,000 from Wells Fargo. The grant is supporting healthy food and hunger relief programs in the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro area.

A strong community depends on an accessible and affordable food system for all people – one that provides services to meet current food needs and builds capacity to provide healthy food for generations to come. Yet, in the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro area, about 1 in 7 people experience food insecurity because they lack reliable access to affordable, nutritious food. This includes children, seniors, working adults and individuals in poverty.
