                                 Meals at No Cost for Children

Omaha Public Schools is able to offer meals at no cost to all children, ages 18 and under, through the end of the 2020-2021 school year.  Under a waiver issued from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, remote learners, in-school learners, and community children, ages 1 -18, will receive breakfast and lunch. 

Any funds which paid for meals since August 18, 2020 have been credited back into the student's accounts.

Omaha Public Schools is offering Meals2Go at no cost to students who are learning remotely at Omaha Public Schools and community children, ages 1 - 18.  Each bag contains school favorites, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.  Milk is available as an option. 

*All children and students ages 18 and younger may participate

*Meals2Go are available on Mondays (breakfast and lunch for Monday and Tuesday) and Wednesdays (breakfast and lunch for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday)

*Curbside pick-up will be at any of the schools who are currently distributing meals; registration is not required

*Because the cafeteria staff is serving meals in the school, the meal pick up time is 8:30 - 9:30 in the middle and high schools and 9:30 - 10:30 in the elementary schools

*Bring the child's or student's ID; report card, schedule, birth certificate, etc. when picking up the meals.

 Join the Omaha Public Schools Nutrition Services
Team!
     We are hiring for the 2020-21 school year 

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
