Agency Councils- Coming soon!

Food Bank for the Heartland is excited to announce a brand new opportunity for agency partners. It’s called the Agency Council, and its main goals include:

  • Increasing transparency between the Food Bank and our partner agencies
  • Helping agency partners connect with each other and support each other
  • Providing leadership development
  • Maximizing agency partners’ involvement and engagement within the community
  • Creating a space for new ideas about hunger relief to be heard

The Agency Council will be made up of one representative from each of our 8 regions and Food Bank for the Heartland staff. Region representatives and Food Bank staff will meet twice a year. Each region representative will be expected to meet quarterly with the agency partners in their region to fulfill the above goals. If you’re interested in becoming a region representative or learning more about the Agency Council, please contact Amy Wackerhagen at or via phone at 402-905-4817.
