In collaboration with more than 110 school partners in Southeast Nebraska, 970,754 meals were connected through our Child Hunger Programs last fiscal year. The BackPack Program connects more than 2,000 households with easy to prepare meals and snacks each Friday during the academic year. School Food Markets and Pantries are held in schools across Southeast Nebraska, where nearly 4,500 students and their families select food items from a monthly pop-up distribution in their school. The Lincoln Public Schools Emergency Pantry, which provides shelf-stable foods from a centrally located space three days a week during the school year, and the Student-Parent Voucher Program, vouchers to help student parents offset the cost of groceries, also aim to alleviate child hunger.
Lunch Every Day by Kathryn Otoshi
Every day Jimmy takes ‘Skinny Kid’s’ lunch at school. No way will he be caught dead standing in that FREE LUNCH line. Even when he’s called into the principal’s office, Jimmy just shrugs. “Yeah. Whatever.” Until a surprising act of kindness stops him in his tracks. For a split second a door cracks open into Jimmy’s heart. Who knows? Maybe he’ll just kick that door right open.
