2018 marks another successful year of CSP employees helping the community by collecting food and other essentials for the Food Bank for the Heartland. Food Bank for the Heartland is the largest food bank in Nebraska and Iowa, serving 93 counties. The organization provides for 535 food pantries, schools, emergency shelters and other nonprofit partners. During FY 2017, the organization has distributed 22 million meals to their nonprofit partners.
Fighting hunger is an ongoing, collaborative effort and Food Bank for the Heartland works with individuals, various organizations and grocery stores, as well as the USDA and Feeding America. They also make food purchases to add to the donations, ensuring there is enough food for those in need. For every dollar the Food Bank receives, they are able to provide three meals.

CSP is also proud to partner with the Omaha Street School, Omaha Ronald McDonald House, Stephen Center Omaha, CUES and Angels Among Us, all worthwhile organizations serving the residents of Nebraska. We are grateful for the efforts of these organizations to make a difference in the communities we all share.
