National School Lunch Week - Oct. 14-18

Oct 11, 2019

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) serves more than 30 million children every school day. President John F. Kennedy created National School Lunch Week (NSLW) in 1962 to promote the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child’s life and the impact it has inside and outside of the classroom.

School nutrition programs play a critical role in ensuring all students, regardless of income level, receive nutritious lunches which follow strict federal nutrition standards. School lunches include servings of fruits and vegetables, whole-grains, lean protein and low-fat dairy.
