Yet, through all the ups and downs of this unprecedented year, the food industry has somehow weathered the storm and heroically met the needs of our community.

Susan Whitfield, Facility Manager of No More Empty Pots, chats talks to Mike Hogan about the mission of No More Empty Pots and how the Food Day Omaha drive helped them to achieve their goals.
