Chef Sarah Slattery was born and raised in Nebraska’s Legislative District 2. Sarah knows the community and its needs because she has been there her whole life. Philanthropy and community service are in Sarah’s blood. That’s why she has given so much of her time and talent over the years to lots of area nonprofit organizations, such as March of Dimes, Visiting Nurse Association, No Kid Hungry, the Nebraska Student Nutrition Action Committee, and St. John the Baptist School in Plattsmouth. Sarah even spent a year building Habitat for Humanity houses in Omaha as a member of the AmeriCorps National Service program.
Sarah is a single mother to Helen Rose, a 6th grader at St. John’s. Sarah is also currently the head of the school’s hot lunch program, where she has re-introduced fresh produce and scratch cookery with incredibly positive results. Sarah aspires to be the representative for ALL of District 2, and will work to fight for the rights of all its citizens. Sarah currently lives in Plattsmouth with her daughter Ellie, their dogs Alfred & Moxie, cats Pickles & Bean, and a whole lot of house plants.
