With a focus on health and safety, families will drive through to pick up food. One breakfast and one lunch package of meals will be available per student/child in the vehicle. If you are unable to bring children in the vehicle, please bring a student ID, report card or other verification for each student.
We hope to continue this service depending on the health conditions and guidance in our community. If additional dates will be available, we will communicate those weekly.
Food Bank for the Heartland hosts drive-through food distributions across the community. Several pantry partners also provide food for community members.
Counseling Supports for Students and Families
There are social-emotional supports available for your student and family during this time. School counselors, psychologists and social workers continue to be accessible by email with questions or concerns. Omaha Public Schools also partners with the Boys Town National Hotline to offer 24/7 access to trained counselors by phone. That number is 531-299-SAFE (7233). Please reach out if you or a loved one is struggling.
