An Omaha chef has set a big goal. Lynn Leahy is president of a non-profit organization the Power of One and has organized a huge spaghetti feed that will take place at 12 Omaha area high schools this Sunday.
Leahy says, “We are just a bunch of regular Joe’s who wanted to make a difference. There is so much overwhelming bad sometimes, how divided everything seems to be. I just wanted to put this together to prove to ourselves that Omaha was more than baseball, zoo and steaks.”
Leahy says Nebraskans are very competitive so she decided to have everyone participate and try to set a Guinness record by holding the worlds largest spaghetti feed. She will have to serve up 17,000 plates of pasta to make the record book and for that she needs a lot of participation from the public.
They will accept free will donations for the meal and all proceeds will go directly to the Food Bank for the Heartland. They help stock the shelves of food pantries across Nebraska and western Iowa.
The event runs from 11 until 3 at all high schools in Omaha including Ralston, Plattsmouth, Westside and Lewis Central in Council Bluffs. In Bellevue it will be held at the LiedCenter.
