Nebraska Thursdays                              

Nutrition Services is committed to provide healthy school meals and snacks to the students of Omaha Public Schools every day. Farm to School is a program that connects schools (K-12) and farmers who produce local foods. The objectives are to serve healthy meals, improve student nutrition, provide agriculture, health and nutrition education opportunities; and support the local and regional economy.

Since September 1, 2016, the first Thursday of each month our menus will feature items which are grown, produced, or packaged in Nebraska. Known as "Nebraska Thursdays", the day will feature locally sourced products. It is our way of supporting the local economy and to highlight Nebraska companies.

The menu for Thursday, September 7, 2017 includes the below Nebraska produced items. Other menu options are also available at all schools:

Ranch (Elementary) or Spicy (Secondary) Chicken Drummies - Smart Chicken, Tecumseh, NE - Spices mixed by International Spices, Fremont, NE
Breadstick - Rotella's Bakery, Omaha, NE

Corn on the Cob - Daniels Produce, Columbus, NE

Butternut Squash - Daniels Produce, Columbus NE

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 can 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
