Omaha first responders get a free lunch on Wednesday
OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) – First responders in Omaha will have the community pay for their lunch on Wednesday.
With the help of local businesses, the First Responders Foundation is distributing free lunches to police and fire departments across Omaha tomorrow.
First responders receive either a meal from Chick-fil-A or a steak courtesy of Omaha Steaks. The bags were decorated by local students.
Jim Hanson, who leads the project, says it’s the least they can do to show their support.
“Because the last year has been so tough for first responders, they have to work so many hours and take care of sick people …” said Hanson.
A total of 1,100 lunches will be delivered to the police and fire departments, with nine different routes across Omaha.
It’s the 12th year of the program.
