Join the Omaha Public Schools
We are hiring for the 2016-17 school
School cafeteria employees are skilled professionals in the
food service industry. No longer
referred to as “lunch ladies,” they offer more to students than simply handing
out school breakfasts and lunches and are one of many groups of people who
contribute to a child’s education.
Working alongside teachers, coaches, counselors, librarians, and other
school personnel, cafeteria employees can make a difference in the life of a
child. By preparing and serving healthy
meals, they help support the core mission of education, especially when it
comes to boosting student’s concentration, focus, and cognitive function.

Children need good food all year long, even
when they're not in school. Omaha Public Schools proudly sponsors the
Summer Food Service Program, providing over 300,000 healthy meals to
children 1-18 years old, free of charge each summer.
Thanks to the Federally funded program
(SFSP), children get the nutrition they need to learn, play and grow
during vacation when they do not eat at school. Summer meals act as an
extra "magnet" to draw children to activities and activities draw
children to nutritional meals.
