National School Lunch Week is a time to recognize the valuable contributions made by the National School Lunch Program since its inception in 1946. This program is responsible for providing over 29 million children with access to fresh fruits, vegetables, milk, and other healthy foods while in school. During National School Week we celebrate the impact that this nationwide program has had on childhood obesity, diabetes, and overall academic success.
Every year, SNA sponsors National School Lunch Week (NSLW) during the second full week in October. Find the resources you will need to make your celebration a success, while highlighting the importance of school lunch.
Make sure your school has the ultimate National School Lunch Week Celebration. Have a mini party at every lunch. Let the students bring or buy healthy lunches, dance, and have fun during their 30-45 minute break. Make eating healthy fun passing out custom clif bars to the students that have a piece of fruit with their lunch instead of potato chips. You could also send home a “how to pack a healthy lunch” brochure to not only educate students but give a guide to parents how to pack the perfectly nutritious lunch.
