Omaha Performing Arts, Omaha Symphony, Opera Omaha, Omaha Community Playhouse and Joslyn Art Museum are proud to partner with ConAgra Foods again this holiday season for ConAgra Foods’ Shine the Light on Hunger program.

This collaborative event, which begins November 1, 2013, is sponsored by ConAgra Foods and features a food drive at five venues: the Orpheum Theater, Holland Performing Arts Center, Omaha Community Playhouse, Joslyn Art Museum and the Scottish Rite Theater. Patrons are encouraged to bring canned food and other non-perishable items to each venue when attending any performance November 1 through December 31, 2013.

All donations collected will support the Food Bank for the Heartland. Last year, the performing arts organizations collected approximately 3,400 pounds of food, which resulted in 2,800 meals.

In addition to the collection of canned food and other non-perishable items, informational exhibits promoting awareness about child hunger and nutrition will also be displayed at the Omaha Community Playhouse and at both of Omaha Performing Arts’ venues, the Orpheum Theater and Holland Performing Arts Center.
