We’re excited to celebrate National School Lunch Week which is October 12th – 16th. Not sure what it is? Keep reading to learn more and find out about our incredibly special way of celebrating the week!

What is National School Lunch Week?

During the 2nd full week in October, National School Lunch Week highlights the programs and nutritious food served up every day throughout the school year at schools all over the country. Since 1946, national school lunch programs have been available to students. While many areas may have offered school lunches before that time, other areas found it difficult to find the funds and resources to support such a program.

Today, many school districts not only offer lunch, but breakfast and an after-school snack as well. National School Lunch Week focuses on healthy food choices, balanced diets, portion sizes and more. Throughout the week, cooks, and cafeteria personnel at schools across the country will feature posters and information about school lunches. Parents are encouraged to participate, too.
