On the Hook

A new addition is coming to the Omaha Food Truck scene. On the Hook Fish and Chips will celebrate their grand opening this Friday and Saturday (May 24th and 25th) in the parking lot at Thunderhead Brewing (1037 Jones). The truck covers 6 states, bringing their line-caught Alaskan cod to fans across the Midwest. A from-scratch batter and line of signature dipping sauces separate this fried fish from your fast food favorite.

Summer Food Programs

For many children, the free and reduced school lunch program provided most or all of the nutrition they had access to in a day. Many families are making hard decisions about whether to keep lights on or food in the cupboards. No child should dread summer, and no parent should have to watch their child go hungry. Several Omaha organizations are working hard to prevent hunger in our community. If you or someone you know is facing food insecurity, text “Eat up” to 877-877 for a list of locations where food is being made available to those in need.
