Public School Food Service: (paid positions available)

Schools and school districts across Nebraska are in critical need of staff to prepare and serve meals during the upcoming school year. [Less staff means less capacity, which means less thorough work and output, which means less healthy meals for kids.]

--One of the best ways to see what positions are available in your area is to go to the school district’s website and search for the word “Nutrition”.

--These positions are usually about 25 hours/week (9AM – 2PM) and are great for parents who are wanting a job that matches the school year.

Whispering Roots

Whispering Roots has a need for protein, to further amplify their distribution efforts. If you have ideas, questions, or are able to assist, please contact Mr. Greg Fripp at gfripp@whisperingroots.org
