Beatrice Backpack Program
The Beatrice Educational Foundation was the recipient of a $500 contribution from Farmers Cooperative. The donation will be put towards the annual Empty Bowls Luncheon held March 16, 2022, at the Vintage Venue in Beatrice. The event supports the Lincoln Food Bank / Beatrice Backpack Program.

The Beatrice Backpack Program is in its 13th year of operation and has been very successful in helping those in need. The program provides food to qualifying families each weekend during the school year. 

The need for the program continues to grow. If you are interested in donating to the Beatrice Backpack Program, please contact Beatrice Public Schools at 402-223-1500.

Land O’Lakes matched the donation with an additional $500, for a total contribution of $1,000.
