Hunger Calls For A Hero

Lenny’s Sub Shop at Midtown is striving to help the estimated 97,000 children who suffer from food insecurity every day. Lenny’s Subs have set a national goal of raising $25,000 in September for No Kid Hungry. Every dollar donated to the cause provides up to 10 meals for hungry children in our community. Head down for a sub, drop a dollar, and leave a hero. Thank you for helping Lenny’s reach their goal of feeding the most helpless of Nebraska’s citizens!
