Since our inception, Kohler Industries has been built on the idea of serving people. Serving our customers the meat processing equipment they want, when they need it, and doing it right the first time. As we’ve grown, so has our ability to impact and serve our community. Our roots in the food processing industry make us especially partial to ensuring everyone in our hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska, has enough to eat over the holiday season. Which is why every year we team up with area businesses to raise food and donations for the Food Bank of Lincoln, a local nonprofit dedicated to eliminating food scarcity in southeast Nebraska.
2018 was an exceptional year for Kohler’s Philanthropy projects, including our Annual Food Drive.
With the help of surrounding partnerships, we raised just short of 750 lbs of food to donate.
That’s roughly equivalent to 620 meals for our hungry neighbors! Not only were we able to beat last year’s donation totals, but we set a record for the most food donated during our food drive to date.
From its beginning in 2016, our Annual Food Drive efforts have brought in over a ton (2,000 lbs) of food donations. These donations support an estimated 58,000 + food insecure people in our region, including veterans, elderly and disabled citizens, and over 18,000 children. We’re proud to organize this charitable event each year that fosters community and helps close that food shortage gap.
