After-school snacks or meals help ensure children
receive the nutrition they need to learn, play and grow. Organized structured
and supervised programs that provide snacks allow children to think and behave
Public Schools provides over 1,700 free snacks each month. The snacks provide
an extra burst of energy needed for students staying after school.
Under the Child and Adult Care Food Program, the At-Risk
After School Meals Program provides children a place to go after school and
nutritious food that gives them the energy they need to concentrate on homework
and participate in physical, educational and social activities. Omaha Public
Schools sponsors the sites in partnership with several community organizations
as well with district staff.
