Omaha, Nebraska (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
Little Red Barn Beef, an Omaha-based and family-owned provider of all-natural steaks and burgers, announced today that Westside Community School District will be serving their locally raised beef during the 2011-2012 school year. Their all-natural beef will be exclusively featured in the district’s monthly lunch menu.
“Little Red Barn Beef is honored to be part of the Westside Community School District’s Food Evolution Program,” said Keith Gregerson, Owner of Little Red Barn Beef. “It is a privilege to help the district encourage Omaha’s children to develop healthy eating habits.”
Diane Zipay, the Westside Community School District’s Director of Nutrition Services, saw Little Red Barn Beef as a perfect step in the district’s path toward more fresh, wholesome, and locally-sourced food. “Little Red Barn Beef helps us put our best plate forward,” said Zipay. “Our students love their ground beef, and we love knowing that we’re doing our part to create a healthier tomorrow by serving beef that has no growth hormones, steroids, or other chemicals in it.”
Regional schools are seeing a growing momentum in support of offering all-natural food in school menus. Little Red Barn Beef and the Westside Community School District both look forward to continuing this partnership beyond the 2011-2012 school year, as they have already seen an overwhelmingly positive response from administration, students and parents.
