There’s still a few more weeks to pick up or make some lovely items to donate to the NEAFCS Silent Auction.  Popular items include jewelry, handmade crafts, local products, and food/beverages.  Items that easily fit into a carry-on are especially desirable. Once at Omaha, silent auction items can be dropped off near the registration desk on Sunday 10/15 from 4:30-7:30pm and Monday 10/16 from 8am-5pm.

2017 President's Charity

Theresa Mayhew (NY), President NEAFCS

I’m pleased to announce that I have selected the Food Bank for the Heartland as my President’s Charity for Annual Session 2017. With our theme of “Harvesting Opportunities”, I couldn’t think of a better choice! Founded in 1981, Food Bank for the Heartland’s mission is to “ensure access to healthy food for people in need in Nebraska and western Iowa.” Click here for more information on this organization. 

I hope that you will join me in helping the Food Bank for the Heartland continue the excellent work that they do by contributing to their cause. Donations can be dropped off at the registration area (look for the “piggy bank” cookie jar). Additionally, a special “pass the basket” collection will be taken during Wednesday’s General Session. Cash and checks made out to Food Bank of the Heartland will be cheerfully and gladly accepted. Thanks, in advance, for supporting this worthy cause and for helping us share the richness of the harvest!
