An Omaha South student saw her idea come to life thanks to the help of two local businesses.

Ximena Anguiano, 14, was in a summer program where she entered a contest with a team of five students.

They were told to come up with a restaurant idea, but instead came up with a delivery service they called World in a Box.

The boxes hold different ethnic foods that people might not otherwise have a chance to get to know in the community.

"It's crazy. I never expected to win the contest, let alone the idea come to life. So, it's kind of overwhelming," Anguiano said.

A luncheon held Friday served more than 300 people with the help of Asian Burmese Restaurant and Builder-Trend.

The project is helping to build relationships and cultural understanding between Omaha communities.
