School Lunch Hero Day!

Between preparing healthy food, adhering to strict nutrition standards, navigating student food allergies, and offering service with a smile, your FNS staff have a lot on their plate.  To celebrate their hard work and commitment, we will be celebrating School Lunch Hero Day, Friday – May 5th.  School Lunch Hero Day provides an opportunity for parents, students, school staff and communities to thank those who provide healthy meals to 30 million of America’s students each school day.   For many children, school lunch is the most important and nutrient-rich meal of their day.

Showing how much you appreciate a school nutrition employee can be as simple as saying thank you or as special as holding a reception to recognize their achievements.  Help us celebrate this special day by honoring your staff.   For more information or ways to celebrate, please visit
