ThanksSharing

It’s not too early to start thinking about who you plan to invite to your home for Thanksgiving dinner, especially if you plan on inviting a bunch of people you don’t know yet. Raise money for local food banks by signing up to host a ThanksSharing dinner and inviting people who probably wouldn’t otherwise enjoy a home-cooked meal on Thanksgiving because they don’t live near family. https://www.mealsharing.com/

Celebrate Food!

The issue of food insecurity is one that is too familiar here in the United States. Recognizing this nationwide dire issue, the Center for Science in the Public Interest created Food Day, a nationwide event meant to highlight the importance of food availability, and enhance community investment in the health of local food systems. 

In an effort to promote the availability of local food for all, the Gretchen Swanson Center for Nutrition partnered with The Reader, the Omaha Farmers Market and other local vendors to organize our own Food Day celebration, held on October 11th on 11th and Howard Street.

Noshsense

Have you ever had a conversation with someone who is sitting on the precipice of a life-changing moment? It certainly makes for an interesting conversation, and can be a particularly animated conversation if there’s caffeine involved.

When I sat down to chat with Jill Lemen about her Noshsense bars it was obvious that this is a woman on the precipice of many life-changing moments ahead of her. She has kids readying to graduate from high school. She has a small business that’s rapidly becoming a bigger business. There’s a lot of change ahead of Jill, but she’s ready. “That’s the thing; I don’t really have a fear of failure,” says Jill. “I’ve been building this runway to get ready to take...

Farnam House Brewing Company

The first thing I noticed when I started talking to Tony Thomas about Farnam House Brewing Company is that he had a look on his face that I recognize. It’s the same face artists make when they create something they’re insanely proud of. It’s the face I make when my kids do something clever, and I decide they’re clever because I made them that way. It’s what my brother jokingly refers to as a “smug smirk of satisfaction,” or “ssmos” for short.

You see, Tony’s been at this whole idea of opening a brewery for quite some time. He didn’t just one day lean over to his friend Phil Doerr and in a drunken stupor slur, “We should totally open a brewery.” No, Tony’s dream of opening a brewery has...
