Nutrition Services

Nutrition Services Vision Statement

Nutrition Services provides leadership that inspires service of nutritious meals to children, students and adults.

Emergency School Foodservice Guidance

Nutrition Services and Nebraska Extension have worked together to develop a comprehensive framework for foodservice directors in the event that all foodservice personnel are away from school due to Covid-19 or quarantine. The Emergency School Foodservice Guidance document includes an emergency checklist, safe food handling procedures and easy-to-prepare menus among other resources to support the continued service of nutritious food to students.

Serving Up Great School Meals Information has MOVED.  You can now find recorded webinars and materials on the NSLP Training Page.

The Nebraska Department of Education has put together the Nebraska Winter Break Emergency Food Distributions as a resource for Nebraska families.  Use this information to find food resources that are available in your community while schools are closed.
