JBS went above and beyond to make sure grocery stores stayed stocked and employees had jobs during the heart of the COVID pandemic. The investment to Grand Island and Omaha through their Hometown Strong program proves their commitment to the communities of Nebraska. I thank JBS for their continued attention to the safety of their employees and their generosity to the local communities they serve. I’m grateful Nebraska has such a strong partner.
