Do you eat school lunch? Well National School Lunch Week is here, and it’s your time to shine! School Lunch Week is October 15-19 and the theme is Lots 2 Love. This year it’s all about why we love school lunch. National School Lunch Week or NSLW, is targeted around getting students and school nutrition professionals to connect and share what they love most about school lunch.  

 “The goal is to get more kids to start eating school lunch,” says Ms. Brandy Warr, the cafeteria manager at GBMS. Ms. Warr also says that on school lunch week you will receive a blue ticket every time you buy lunch at school. At the end of the week on Friday or the following Monday, she will draw a ticket and that student will win a prize! Also, on NSLW you can cut out a heart and write your favorite part about eating school lunch, and Ms. Warr will hang them up. 

 According to schoolnutrtion.org, the National School Lunch week program serves 30 million children every school day. President John F. Kennedy developed school lunch week in 1962. The purpose of NSLW is to make it possible for schools to serve nutritious, inexpensive lunches to students each day. During this annual weeklong event, School Nutrition Association members and students around the country celebrate in their cafeterias with decorations, special menus, events and more. 

 In summary, National School Lunch Week is all about getting more students to start eating school lunch. National School Lunch Week is here!
