Nebraska Extension Celebrates Impactful YearNebraska Extension has a long history of helping communities thrive, and in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic spurred us to be more flexible and responsive than ever before.
Nebraska has historically been known as “The Beef State.” So as the weather warms, the time and place are right to celebrate beef month with a barbecue. When handling beef or any meat, keep in mind these good food safety practices:
Clean: Wash hands before preparing foods and after handling raw meats, such as when making hamburger patties or cutting meat for kabobs. Clean and sanitize utensils and surfaces that contact raw meats.
Outdoor activities are a great way to fit physical activity into your day. When physical activity is fun for the whole family, everyone benefits. Don't forget to include children in the planning process to increase their engagement. Adults are encouraged to walk, run, and play with the children during the activity instead of just sitting on the sidelines. We have some of these outdoor activities to get active as a family in the latest edition of Family Fun on the Run newsletter including a FREE printable Sidewalk Chalk Obstacle Course and an Outdoor Scavenger Hunt!
