Hunger Hotline

USDA Hunger Hotline 1-866-3-Hungry, 1-877-8-Hambre; 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM Eastern Time

We share this information every summer, as school meals fall off the table and providing food for hungry families becomes even more of a chore. The hotline can be used to find access to food security programs, or you can text 97779 with simple information requests like “find free summer meals” or “kids eat free”. To learn more about some of the local programs providing food security to Omahans, check out a past Reader article on Omaha’s Food Security Network. There you can access the program, donate funds, or volunteer your time to help feed Omaha’s most vulnerable citizens.
