National School Lunch Week October 19th -23rd!
This year’s theme is “Now Playing: School Lunch”. This year we are promoting that school lunches are the ticket to good nutrition. We have some exciting events planned for the week, dress up days, prizes for
students and staff, special menu items and serving day décor.
Dress Up Days
• Monday, October 19th – “Now Playing”
• Wednesday, October 21st – “And The Award Goes To…”
• Friday, October 23rd – “The Oscar goes to The Best Cast & Crew”
• Student Prizes – A special “School Lunch Ticket” will be placed inside a few selected meals served. Those students who receive the school lunch ticket can return to their school at the next meal service to redeem it for a prize.
From photo booths to roving sample carts, Donna searches every day for new ways to serve more students. As a high school cafeteria manager, she ensures the 1700 meals served daily at her four main serving lines, salad bar, two carts, and two snack bars set the standard of how school food should taste and look. She has the unique ability to inspire others, encouraging her staff to connect with the students and take pride in their work. She knows her students may not have access to healthy food and if she can get a student to try her meals, she’ll have a return customer, meaning they are receiving the food they need to develop, learn, and be their best selves.
